All of your students can have fun practicing addition and counting on with this hands-on spinner math center game How Many Candies! This counting-on game comes with two different versions if students are still working with manipulatives to meet the needs of everyone in your classroom!


In this game, students will spin the hand spinner to get their starting number, and then the candy spinner to see how many more to add to their original number and they can write both numbers and their equation on the recording sheet on the play mat. If your students are still working up to counting on, there is a version with space for them to use counters!
