Skills taught/practiced: Students will be working on understanding combinations of ten. By the end of the work stations, students should have a solid understanding of the different number combinations possible. Within these worksheets, students will also be practicing other math skills such as tally marks, missing numbers, and counting on.
10 practice sheets with the number sentence provided
10 practice sheets with the second number missing
10 practice sheets with the first number missing
10 practice sheets with alternating sides missing
1 worksheet where students create their own number sentences
Instructions: These combination of ten worksheets can be used as math centers, morning work, homework practice, small group practice, or whole group practice.
There are several levels of worksheets which enable you to provide differentiation for the varied levels in your classroom. Students who are just being introduced to combinations of ten should start out with the practice sheets where the full number sentence is provided. Then, have them move on to the practice sheets where only the second number is missing. This enables students to use the counting on method for awhile if they need to. After they have had enough practice with the second number missing, they can then move on to the following levels---first number missing, alternating sides missing, and finally the last stage where students create their own number sentences.
Start each student at their own level. You could have centers around the room that students move between.
