Making Ten to Add: Holiday Edition gives your students a lot of practice with the math strategy “Making Ten to Add”. Students need opportunities to work with all new math skills. This particular strategy is very important for your students to master in order to understand higher level math concepts.

Students “make ten” by breaking apart a smaller number and then adding the remainder of the broken-apart number to a ten. Working with a ten in addition is much easier than working with any other number. Making ten by breaking apart smaller numbers is crucial to understanding place value its representation and the relationship between numbers. All students need lots of practice with this skill in order to competently use it going forward.

This unit is aligned with the First Grade Common Core Math Standard 1.OA.6a:
Add and subtract within 20, demonstrating fluency
for addition and subtraction within 10
(Addition and Subtraction Strategies). Use strategies such as counting on and making ten (e.g., 8 + 6 = 8 + 2 + 4 = 10 + 4 = 14).

It includes sixteen pages of practice with a holiday theme. I use these pages during our “written math practice” rotation during math workshop/guided math time. These pages can also be used for early finishers or homework during the time that you teach the 1.OA.6b math strategy. Watch for more MEGA MATH PRACTICE units to come aligned with the Common Core State Standards.

I use ‘guided math’ in my classroom. I begin my teaching time block teaching/spiraling math concepts as a whole group, but most of my math block is devoted to guided practice in small groups followed by independent or small group practice, centers and intervention. I begin my math time every day with a page from my popular Number of the Day series. You may find more math in this “printable” format in my store.

I hope that you and your kids enjoy this fun holiday resource. Check out my store for lots of fun math units including my popular Number of the Day units for grades K-Second.
