We have been focusing on making 10 in math. My little owls are doing really well with it.
I made a ten frame on our carpet with masking tape and we have been using that for our making 10 activities. I am going through this slowly with the whole group to really guide them in the right direction. My little owls really need this extra support and slower pace this year and I'm working with them where it is comfortable. Yesterday we used foam conversation hearts to make 10. We start by rolling a die and then adding that many hearts. We then figured out how many more we needed to add to fill in the ten frame or to make 10. We used the below recording page as evidence of our learning.
The adoreable clipart is from Giftseasonstore on Etsy.
Today we went back to that masking tape ten frame and worked on making 10. This time we used "us" as the objects. Let me tell you, I have never seen them so engaged and eager to participate. It was wonderful! Here are a few feet shots to see what our learning looked like.
Hope your Valentine's Day was filled with hugs!
