Do you want a fun way to practice number combinations to 10 by using both math and literacy? You will love the task cards to figure out the combinations and the whole class or a small group can work on the problem solving skills. The cute clip art and the books The Tale of Peter By Beatrix Potter or Tops & Bottoms by Janet Stevens add to the excitement of this game.
Materials (Garden theme) Game 1 skill level
*5 worksheets with 4 problems, recording sentence and ten frames. You can cut the cards apart or use one sheet per kiddo. If you cut the sheet apart there are 20 Task Cards all together.
Materials (Garden theme) Game 2 Skill Level
*18 task cards featuring a garden, rabbit, vegetables and a basket
*3 work sheets
Before I use the task cards, we practice using counters and demonstrate a game called What's Under the Bowl?
How to Use the resource
*I usually copy 3 sets of task cards so it makes enough cards for a classroom set.
Cut apart and laminate the task cards. The kids pick up a task card and match the number in the corner of the card to the number on the work sheet.
The kiddos count the vegetables on the task card and record it on the ten frame (worksheet). They must figure out how many vegetables are in the basket. They can do this by counting the number of empty spaces on the ten frame. They record the information on the blank story problem. Each child has their own worksheet.
