This packet will make teaching sums to 10 fun and easy! With 16 colorful teaching pages for direct instruction and 12 student pages, kids will love getting to color their own charts and creating patterns.
If your students have mastered ways to 5 this is a helpful extension activity to boost understanding of the patterns when decomposing larger numbers. When using this with my first grade class, students were able to count on faster and seemed to recall addition facts quicker too. We revisited this quick refresher activity throughout the year to keep our fact fluency sharp.
The sums chart is a helpful visual for reminding young mathematicians that zero is a number and can be used in equations as the first or second addend. After teaching this unit I could ask a student to list all the "ways to 7" for example and he knew there were 8 ways and that he should list the "flips" aka the commutative property.
