Materials: recording sheets, ten frames, dice. You will need to provide
a brown sheet of construction paper to represent the puddle and manipulates. I use tiny plastic pigs purchased online, however bingo chips, pink unifix cubes or printed & laminated pigs work well.
Using this product the children will count to tell the number of objects, compare numbers, decompose and compose sets of 6 7 & 8, record by writing an equation.
In the second activity the children compose and decompose numbers 11 - 20. Roll the die, identify the numeral. The printed pigs on the mats represent 10 pigs, the children will then show understanding of ex.18 = 10+8 by adding 8 more pigs in the second 10 frame.
