Magnetic Math is focused on taking a whole number and adding up with the support of a 10 frame. The sums go up to 100 in this resource and would be well suited for K-1 students to work with during math centers. For best results, I would pair with a magnetic cookie sheet and number magnets for students to practice interactively rather than in a “worksheet” format.
Included in the Download:
- 46 Mats for Magnetic Cookie Sheets
- 100 Grid for Accountability
Additional Materials Needed:
- $1 Cookie Sheets or Magnetic Surface
- Magnetic Numbers
How I plan on using in my kindergarten classroom:
I plan on color coding my sheets by sums & placing them in a bucket for students to browse.
(For examples: Sums 0-20 Yellow paper, Sums 20-30 Pink, etc.) By the Spring, I will mix the sheets to challenge my students because by Spring I generally have full mastery of sums to 10. However, I will only focus on sums to 10 (and to 20 – for some) the first half of the school year until students have displayed mastery before adding in more challenging concepts.
How to use:
Students will place their chosen sheet on a cookie tray, say the whole number and count up on the 10 frame additive to find a sum. Once finding the sum, students will select the magnetic numbers to pair with it on “Magnetic Mat” via the cookie sheet. If you need some additional student accountability, I have included a 100 grid. For best use, I would recommend printing off a few and placing them into a sleeve with an expo marker. As students find sums, they will cover with a cube or x with a maker the sums they have solved.
* Not enough magnetic numbers? No problem. Toss in an expo marker and let students write answers on the laminated sheets! The main object is counting up!
