I made this for my kindergarten students and can be used in a variety of ways. (Numbers 1-5 in the first book and 6-10 in this listing). As we know, young students tend to need much visual representation and support through manipulatives. I figured many teachers have the standard teddy bear manipulatives within their classroom. Make math both visual and fun! Here is how you can use this product:
1.) Cut the pages and staple them to make a book (cover-number 10).
2.) At each page, the digit, word and ten frame are represented. Students will recognize each number and first place the appropriate number of teddy bears in the ten frame.
3.) After students represent the number using the teddy bear manipulatives, they can either color in the clip art teddy in the ten frame or use the bingo stampers (which my students LOVE!) and stamp the number of dots in each teddy's belly area. (Essentially they are showing the value of the digit shown in two different ways - one more visual for understanding and following up with how a ten frame would typically look).
I'm sure there are many other ways you can adapt this product to use in your classroom, too for both guided learning and independent work.
**Make sure to check out my other listing for the first book for numbers 1-5. Some students can handle doing 1-10 at once, but I felt it was best to break it up for my students so they weren't too overwhelmed.
