Teen numbers don’t have to be tricky. Use teen toppers to help your kiddos see each teen number as a group of ten and some more. To build a teen number, a child puts an apples card (single-digit number) on top of a tree card (set of ten).
SEE MORE DETAILS IN THE PREVIEW.
THIS SET INCLUDES:
* A tree math mat and apple manipulatives for building teen numbers. Use these in a small group along with the recording sheets.
* A set of teen-topper cards. Use these with small groups or put these in a center along with the recording sheets.
* Small group lessons for use with the teen-topper cards.
* Four recording pages.
* Three cut-and-paste pages. Use these as independent work, remediation or as assessments.
HERE'S WHY IT WORKS:
Students in the initial stages of understanding concept of ten do not see ten as a unit. These students focus on individual items that make ten. Have these children use the mats and manipulative cards to build teen numbers.
While using the teen-topper cards, students can see and count the ten apples on the tree cards that show one set of ten.
In the next stage, students understand ten as a unit made of ten ones. They can count on from ten to make a teen number. Use the teen-topper cards and recording pages. Try them in small groups and also in centers.
Finally, students understand tens and ones without using materials. These students can independently use the cut-and-paste pages along with the teen-topper cards, if desired. Use these pages in small groups, centers or as assessments.
