Number Bonds to 9 Worksheets
Here are four printables to help kids learn number bonds to 9:
For Kindergarten or Preschool
This printable helps kids learn the number pairs of 9. It’s not so much a worksheet as it is a learning aid. For those that wish to introduce number bonds of 9 to their preschool or kindergarten students, this would be the best one for that.
There’s no writing required, only a bit of coloring. It’s meant to be done alongside a parent or teacher.
It can be used to help kids understand the addition and subtraction fact families of 9.
As part of the math lesson, it might be helpful to use 9 objects to illustrate that groups of parts make up a total. For example, showing a group (or part) of 4 marbles and a group of 5 marbles, will make a total of 9 marbles.
The child can then color each section of the fact family, the total one color, and the parts another.
At this point it’s only about understanding that:
- PART + PART = TOTAL
- TOTAL – PART = THE OTHER PART
With your guidance, they can use the visual of the coloured fact families, to verbally answer the addition and subtraction questions. This will help them grasp the relationships between the numbers.
Number Bonds to 9 Coloring Worksheet For Kindergarten or First Grade
Here is a coloring worksheet to help kids learn the number bonds of 9. Kids will use 2 different colors to decompose, or break into smaller parts, each set of 9 leaves.
This decomposing addition worksheet would be ideal for fall.
For First Grade
The next two number bonds to 9 worksheets would be best for 1st grade math.
In the first worksheet, kids will have to practice their adding and subtracting to remember all the number pairs of 9. The clover leaf theme presents an easy way for them to differentiate between the total vs the parts.
They will also get to color to show:
- if 9 is even or odd
- what 9 looks like in a Ten Frame
- and trace and learn to write the word “nine”.
And as a way of review, this coloring number worksheet will have kids work on the number pairs of 6, 7, 8, and 9.
You can download all of these number bonds to 9 worksheets, free below. You will get all 5 pages of these free printables in .pdf.
Next week, we’ll be playing games to practice number bonds and there will be new printables to master all the skills we’ve learned to date. After that we’ll move on to learning the number bonds of 10.
