# Number Blocks: Additions 5 by 5 Addition is the process of taking two or more numbers together to get the total amount of those values combined. Addition, subtraction, multiplication and division are the four elementary mathematical operations of arithmetic. Around 6 years old, most kids are ready to learn facts about addition. Mastery of single-digit addition can make kids much more confident in mathematics.

Kids may have a hard time learning additions. When teaching kids the concept of addition, parents or teachers could use physical objects to help them solve addition equations by counting. This could help kids grasp the abstract mathematical concepts behind real problems, and show kids the usefulness of maths in real life.
This worksheet gives a 5-by-5 chart of additions of small numbers, from 1 to 5. Each of the 25 addition equations is illustrated with counts of blocks. Parents could use this sheet to help their kids learn and practice additions of small numbers, and memorize and recall the basic facts easily.
