My philosophy on teaching is that if kids can’t learn the way we teach, we must teach them the way they learn. I use this fun Hidden Ten Pair Hunt for practice in identifying ten pairs, an important concept as students continue to work on increasingly rigorous math skills.
This activity has students timing themselves (or a partner) to see how long it takes them to identify all six Ten Pairs on each page. Then they can try to beat their best time using another of the ten unique versions included. My students work on this during their “Hands On” station of our guided math rotations. It’s so simple, fun, and effective! Plus, it’s free of busy distractions, like lots of clip art and hard-to-read fonts. Special needs students are not the only ones who benefit from a clutter-free paper!
