Today is the first day of Ocean week! 5 whole days of Ocean printables! And I have two awesome extras! Make sure to join the newsletter so you will get the extras later this week!
How to Prep the Shark Addition Puzzles
For durability’s sake, I’d recommend printing on card stock or laminating (or both, honestly). I haven’t had much luck printing puzzles like this on regular paper.
Cut out the sharks on the solid black line and then cut the puzzle line in the middle. Make sure not to cut where the shark’s lower fin is located.
How to Use the Shark Math Puzzles for Kids
There are a total of 12 puzzles. Each sum has 2 versions (so there are two shark puzzles for 9, two for 10, etc). Both puzzles that add up to 9 are the same shape, so they will fit both ways.
Simply hand over the puzzle and ask your child to complete them. Matching them heads to tails should be fairly intuitive.
Mix up all 12 puzzles for a bigger challenge.
