What kid doesn't love scissors and glue? I haven't met one yet! Cut and paste is all the rage in my classroom, and I'm fine with that! It keeps their little bodies engaged along with their minds.
This file includes 24 -- yes, 24 -- cut and paste activities for practicing finding 10 more and/or 10 less than a 2-digit number. (That's Common Core math standard 1.NBT.C.5.) There are 8 pages for each of 3 different activities.
"Wait," you say. "What am I going to do with 24 activities that cover only one standard?"
Ohoho, my friend! That's the beauty of this whole thing. Use a couple while you are teaching the standard.. but then keep the rest around. We don't use these all at once. In fact, my favorite time to use these is AFTER I've already taught the standard. We teach 10 more/10 less in the fall, but I will pull one of these activities out in December, February, March, May... whenever the mood strikes me. It's important to review mastered skills, lest our students "forget" and progress is lost. (Sort of like how those push-ups I did last month aren't doing me any good now...)
Use these when you are first teaching 10 more/10 less. Then put some in your sub tub, use one on a Friday afternoon when little hands need tasks, when you have to give that quick make-up test, when the lights go out and your technology-rich lesson is ruined. The review is great, and sometimes we need a mastery activity to boost our confidence.
Another idea? If your students have wandering eyes, print three different pages. Pass them out so that neighbors have different activities. (You devious teacher you!)
