Friends of Ten are the single digit numbers that combine to make a total of ten in addition. After learning these your students will love to make a cute acorn friend to create a record of learning. Combine a math lesson with craft and creativity!
This packet will provide you with template pieces in a few variations to differentiate for a range of learners:
- acorn with face or without
- one page craft (all the pieces one child needs are on a single piece of paper)
- traditional template version (multiple identical pieces on the same page for copying on colored paper
- record with addition symbols or words
Students will make their acorn friend and then record a combination on the ten frame by drawing dots. Display them in your classroom to celebrate your little mathematicians!
