make 10 with ten frames

Just made this up for our math center next week.

Students will use math chips to find the different combinations of ten and record their answers.

During Daily math we’ll be using this package:

These pages include ways of making ten with ten frames, our fingers, chips, drawings, and more.  It will hopefully give my kids the extra  and repeated practice they need to master the concept!

We’ve begun our Children around the World unit.  This year we are incorporating gingerbread men, learning about traditions in different countries as they run around the world.  I’m working on the packet as we go.  Most of the around the world packets I see out there focus on Christmas traditions, which I’m trying to get away from.  Instead, I’m looking for kinder friendly folktales and children’s books, that teach a moral or lesson.

Here is a free report you can use with your students.
