Making numbers is fast becoming a popular way to teach number fluency to our younger students. It's not just about knowing how to add anymore. Students are being asked to understand and demonstrate different ways to make the same number using different combinations of numbers. Starting with "make a 5" and going all the way to "make a 10", Number Buddies provides a fun way to build number sense and number fluency. You have the option to reproduce on colored paper and laminate. Number Buddies makes a great Math Center activity or reproducible worksheet.
