Candy Corn Ten Frame Fun
Grab some candy corn, and have some math fun with your kiddos. This ten frame math activity can be used with your whole class or as a math center. It meets a variety of common core state standards for addition and subtraction, depending on how it is used in the classroom. Each activity reinforces the number and quantity for 10. There are 4 recording sheets: Adding to 10, Subtracting from 10, Using Addition to Solve Subtraction from 10, and Turn Around Facts for 10
K.OA.1 Represent addition and subtraction with objects...
K.OA.2 Solve addition and subtraction word problems and add and subtract within 10, e.g., by using objects or drawings to represent the problem.
K.OA.4 For any number from 1 to 9, find the number that makes 10 when added to the given number, e.g., by using objects or drawings, and record the answer with a drawing or equation.
First Grade Standards:
1.OA.1 Represent and solve problems involving addition and subtraction.
1.OA.3 Apply properties of operations as strategies to add and subtract. (For example, if 8 + 3 = 11 is known, then 3 + 8 = 11 is also known).
1.OA.4 Understand subtraction as an unknown-addend problem. (For example, subtract 10 - 8 by finding the number that makes 10 when added to 8.)
