Ten frames for Number Sense
  • Use these as flashcards, sequence in order, ask how did you know it was 5?
  • Encourage children to share strategies i.e. I saw 3 and 2 and that is 5
Friends of Ten
  • Use a dry erase marker to record answers, or copy one for each child in black and white.
  • Use as cards for a memory game to match two that make 10.
  • Match partners and show using counters or use blank cards to make your own friends of 10 cards and write equations.
Less Than or Bigger Than
  • Copy the board for each student.
  • With a buddy – choose a number each from the card pile and place in the correct side of the card.
Turn-a-round Facts
  • Use the three numbers on the cards to write on small whiteboards the four equations for addition and subtraction equations.
