Understanding ten frames is an important part of developing number sense amongst children. By being able to see a number in a ten frame students are then able to see numbers in many other different ways. For instance, in a ten frame a student might see the number 7 as 5 and 2 or as 3 less than 10. Ten frames help students visualize numbers in many different ways!
My students love hunting around the room and completing task cards! It is a fun and interactive way for children to practice many skills. Students literally get to be detectives as they search for all of the answers!
In my classroom we use task cards in several different ways. A class favorite is when I place the cards all over the room and students go on a hunt answering the different questions using their recording sheet. Students love to be detectives and find all of the numbers/answers! We also use task cards in math centers as well as these are great for early finishers! One final way I use them in my classroom is to help make transitions smoother and quieter! If we have a couple of extra minutes I will flip through the cards and as students answer the question correctly they line-up or walk back to their seat.
This center includes: 30 activity cards, student recording sheet, answer key, and a roll it, write it, show it activity that can be used to check for understanding, homework or as a separate center.
