Product Description
This collaborative math resource was created to help first and second grade students practice the concept of building sums by focusing on a specific group of single-digit numbers, adding them together, and determining whether or not the sum equals ten (10).

How It Works: Either whole class or in a small-group setting, students are shown a series of single-addition math problems. If the sums add up to (or equals) ten (10), students “raise their hands” (a cute hand-held student visual).


What's Included?
*“Raise My Hand” Chant (1 Whole page b/w + 1/2 student sheets b/w)
*Eighteen (18) Single-Digit Addition Problems (1/2 sheet color)
--three addends (6 problems)

Gentle Suggestions/Tips/Reminders:
*This resource is meant to be used interactively. There are four (4) hand response signals included specifically for this purpose.
*There is some PREP involved with this product. Detailed instructions about PREP are located on pages 8, 9, and 10 of this product.
NOTE: the JUMBO craft sticks used for the hand-held response signals can be purchased at Walmart for less than $3.00. If you’re a bargain hunter and love deals, you may be able to find these craft sticks at the 99 cents store or The Dollar Tree. :)
*This resource can be used WHOLE CLASS or within a SMALL-GROUP setting. Please make sure that all of your students have clear access to this activity. Placing each addition problem under a DOCUMENT CAMERA would probably work best. If this is not possible, then you may consider using this resource with your small group kiddos.
*Please feel free to use this product as a reteach, intervention, or review activity. It is perfect for your ESL/EFL/ELD kiddos, reluctant learners, and for those students who need a little making tens “push” to mastery. NOTE: there are eleven (11) flashcards and a making tens workmat included with this product. Please utilize them in any way that fits the needs of your kiddos.
*I have included one black/white BLANK activity printable with this resource. Use this page to customize your very own single-digit addition problems.
*For your convenience, answer keys for all problems have been included.
*While the majority of the pages in this product have been produced in color, you can print using the “grayscale” option, thereby saving $$ on costly colored ink.

Happy raising your hand for ten! :)
