This is such a great activity to do with your entire class! There are lots of ways to use this board.
The primary way to use this is as a model for the teacher.
The students will have smaller versions of the ten frame cards ( After you purchase this,email me and I will email you the document so you can have the ten frame cards for your students).
Directions: Pick a card. Then use different ten frames to make that number. The students should have their own set of ten frame cards to go along with this smart notebook activity. The students will learn to make different addition problems by using these visual ten frame cards. Then have the students write the number sentence on their desk with a dry erase marker.
Bonus: For subtraction, have the students use a dry erase marker and x out dots, to make subtraction problems. For example they can take a dot card of 5 and x out 2 to make the number sentence 5-2=3.
