This is a center game for students to play with partners. It would be great to use for Math with Someone during Math Daily 5!!!
These ten frames make students stop and think about what quantities they see in the frame. It gives students a chance to see what numbers really are. The number 8 really is a quantity of 8. It also lets students build on their number sense by using a foundation of the numbers 5 and 10 to build on their understanding of other numbers. Students will learn that each row of a ten frame has 5 blocks. They know that if the top row is filled up, there are 5 there. They don’t have to count it; they can start at 5 and count on the number in the bottom row.
The ten frames that have two different colored dots help students with their math facts and building 10. Students can tell you what they see in a ten frame, for example: “I see 4 blue and 6 red.” They can use what they see to create a math fact to get to 10. “I know that 4 blues and 6 reds make ten altogether, so 4+6=10.”
This game supports Common Core Standards:
Kindergarten: Understand addition as putting together and adding to, and understand subtraction as taking apart and taking from.
K.OA1 Represent addition and subtraction with objects, fingers, mental images, drawings2, sounds (e.g., claps), acting out situations, verbal explanations, expressions, or equations.
K.OA.2 Solve addition and subtraction word problems, and add and subtract within 10, e.g., by using objects or drawings to represent the problem.
K.OA.3 Decompose numbers less than or equal to 10 into pairs in more than one way, e.g., by using objects or drawings, and record each decomposition by a drawing or equation (e.g. 5 = 2 + 3 & 5 = 4 + 1).
K.OA.4. For any number from 1 to 9, find the number that makes 10 when added to the given number, e.g., by using objects or drawings, and record the answer with a drawing or equation.
K.OA.5 Fluently add and subtract within 5.
First Grade: Add and subtract within 20.
1.OA.5 Relate counting to addition and subtraction (e.g., by counting on 2 to add 2).
1.OA.6 Add and subtract within 20, demonstrating fluency for addition and subtraction within 10. Use strategies such as counting on; making ten (e.g., 8 + 6 = 8 + 2 + 4 = 10 + 4 = 14); decomposing a number leading to a ten (e.g., 13 – 4 = 13 – 3 – 1 = 10 – 1 = 9); using the relationship between addition and subtraction (e.g., knowing that 8 + 4 = 12, one knows 12 – 8 = 4); and creating equivalent but easier or known sums (e.g., adding 6 + 7 by creating the known equivalent 6 + 6 + 1 = 12 + 1 = 13).
Second Grade: Add and subtract within 20.
2.OA.2 Fluently add and subtract within 20 using mental strategies. By end of Grade 2, know from memory all sums of two one-digit numbers.
