Spin, spin, spin the numbers on these wheels! They add lots of appeal to math success and build young mathletes’ self-confidence.
How exciting to learn how to add and subtract! These wheels can help you jump around between addition and subtraction. You’ll want to make several sets to make sure you know all of your number bonds (they’re also called equations)!
Make three wheels. Divide the back of a large paper plate into several pie sections using Crayola® Erasable Colored Pencils and a straight edge. Label sections with numbers around the outside edge using Crayola Fine Line Markers.

On a third paper plate, draw a small center circle and add a tab. This tab needs to be large enough to cover numbers on the second circle. Cut out. On the tab, outline a large plus sign (or a minus sign to practice subtraction) and cut it out to make a hole in that shape. Write a number in the middle.
Assemble your number wheel. Place the plates on top of each other in the order that you made them. Ask an adult to poke a hole in the center of all three layers. Secure with a brass paper fastener.
Start spinning! Pick a number, for example 10. What two numbers combine to equal 10? Pick a number along the edge, like 9, set the plus tab at this number. What number do you need to add to 9 to equal 10? Move the inner numbered circle around so that the
