I created this activity to help my students' number sense and to understand the facts that make up a Fact Family and Number Bond. The CCSS expect students to move from a concrete representation of numbers, to a pictorial representation using pictures, and lastly to an abstract representation with numbers.

Number Sense - Story of 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, & 10
This activity is taking the students through all three steps to see how they each relate to each other.
Included in this dowload is:
1. The Story of 7 Mini-Book with detailed directions on assembly.
2. A Ten Frame that can be photocopied for each child to use. I included two ten frames on the sheet to conserve paper. Print out the Ten Frame on a thicker cardstock and cut it down the middle. You can laminate each Ten Frame for durability to last for many years.
3. If you do not want the Mini-Book cover to print in color, just print in grayscale or use a photocopier.
I hope your students enjoy this activity as much as mine did :)
