Product Description
This cute and engaging interactive slideshow activity will engage your students as they practice

• Solving triple addend addition with sums in the teens
• Finding combinations of 10 within a set of three addends
• Employing quick “marking” strategies when solving printed math problems
• Relating “teen” to 10
• Quickly adding a “ten” to a given number

COMING SOON: Be sure to watch the video preview of this fun and helpful activity!

The slideshow features cute, bold graphics and animations that students will love—especially the sassy wiggling ladybug who appears throughout the activity.

Audio cues appear on each slide to help draw and keep students’ focus directed on the activity.

A triple addend addition problem is presented onscreen, and students are prompted to determine which two addends make ten.

The item's "ten combo" is marked by two large animated spots that appear, highlighting the numbers.

Students are encouraged to add the remaining number to the ten to make a teen number.

You will use this activity many times with your class. Finding combinations of ten is a critical component for building number sense, and is emphasized in the Common Core.

Your students will love frequently reviewing this concept, practicing by quickly moving through the slideshow and sharpening their skills.

This activity could be run by a parent or paraprofessional with a small group, and could also function as a math center activity.

A plethora of printrables accompanies the slideshow, including pre and post tests, and assorted activity sheets

For a list of all included printable activities, be sure to read the contents description.
