Once they do that, they then have to tell me in an addition sentence what they have.
I still have some kiddos who can't remember that they always have 5 so they tend to count, but we're working on it.
Today, some of my kiddos were working on how many to 10. I gave them a ten frame and I might would say "show me 4 red." Then how many yellow counters do you need to make 10?
Somehow I ended up taking two pictures of the same problem but you get the point I'm sure! :) So this was show me 5 red and then how many yellow does it take to get to 10?
So 5 red plus 5 yellow equals 10. They did very well with this and of course the ten frame makes it so much more organized for them.
I created a little worksheet to use as practice. Click on the picture to grab it up.
I didn't have this today when practicing b/c I just made it but I'm going to use it tomorrow for my lower level groups. I will read the problem to them and have them complete it with the ten frame and counters. Then I will have them color the ten frame correctly on the sheet and fill in the numbers.
Here ya go!
Don't forget about my Fabulous Follower giveaway. It ends on Friday!!
I can't seem to get my "schedule posts" to work right. I had something scheduled for yesterday and it never worked. I had to go in and post it. Am I doing something wrong??
