## Prep Needed for your Number Bond Puzzles

Print out your Hatching Number Bond Eggs.

Cut out the eggs on the dashed line.

Then follow the dashed line to separate the egg and the chick.

If you print them out on white card your children may want to colour in the chicks and the eggs before they start to play.

Count out 10 of the little chicks this will be the counters to help your child in the early stages of learning their number bonds to figure out the answers.

## Playing your Easter Number Bond Puzzle Game

Lay the eggs and chicks out mixed up.

Lay out the chicks in 2 rows of 5.

Read the number aloud on the egg and then remove that number of chicks from your collection of 10.

Now count out loud with your child the remaining chicks.

Find the matching chick to complete you number puzzle.

Return the chicks to the set of 10 and continue playing – it’s an important point that with young children get them to work on 1+9=10 and 9+1=10 as initially they won’t understand that this is the same thing. Using the chicks counters makes it easy for children to see, do and remember these facts more than if they are taught to remember them by rote.
