I've been working with my First Graders on finding Friendly Numbers when tackling an addition problem. I explain that Friendly Numbers are numbers that equal 10 OR can be DOUBLES. On these six pages, I give them practice with both. The directions are simple:
1. Find the Friendly 10 Combo (or Doubles) and circle them.
2. Rewrite the problem and solve.
Two of the six pages are perfect for a partner activity. The kids can actually make a worksheet by plugging in combos of 10 or Doubles and give to partner to solve. Seeing who truly understands the concept of Friendly Numbers by applying it to this assignment is eye opening!
