Practice addition and subtraction to 10 and 20 using ten frames and playdough! :)
This is an amazing resource to have students practice and visualize basic facts in a very engaging way. Have them practice on the frames then register some on the worksheets. Great for math centers, guided math and activating activities.
How to use it:
Addition: Students should get the target frame for the day and two colors of playdough. Make some little balls and place on the frames. Then, with a whiteboard marker, write how many balls of each color were placed and complete the addition sentence. After practicing sometimes, students reproduce it with markers/color pencil on the worksheet.
Subtraction: Students should place the playdough balls on the frame and write it down on the subtraction sentence. Then, they smash some of the balls and write down the number of balls smashed. The number of remaining playdough balls is the difference. On the worksheet, students should represent the total of balls placed on the frames and then cross out the number of smashed ones.
-> To be able to use the same mats several times I recommend laminating them or placing in plastic pouches.
