Making 10 to Add is an important skill for our primary learners. 10 becomes a benchmark number which makes addition and subtraction a mental process. Initially, though, Making 10 to Add can be a tough skill. As we are guiding students to 10, it must be a hands-on process. Students must be given hands-on opportunity to break apart numbers, redistribute their placement on the ten frames, and create new equations. Then, we move students to the semi-concrete, drawing and illustrating the process. Finally, students use numbers and number bonds to show their thinking. If students struggle with the semi-concrete or abstract stages of Making 10, then we must move back to the concrete. Having a conceptual understanding of Making 10 is critical to a true understanding. The resources in this download, provide a variety of learning experiences for your students.
