I started working with small math groups today while my other kids rotated through 5 math stations. First time I've done this. Really keeping my fingers crossed it works. Everyone seemed pretty happy today and I got in some quality time with my little groups so it should be fine:)
We were working with 10-frames today. I had them draw their own frames on white boards and then gave them counters to build some numbers. It worked out super well, but I decided when I got home that it might be better for them to work on actual mats which I'll laminate.
Here are 6 different mats for you and some instructions for a few simple 10-frame activities because we ALL know how important it is for the kids to learn to anchor to 5 and 10. The games are called "Building Numbers", "Roll and Build", "10-Frame Flash" and "More or Less Flash". They're all super simple and only require some 10-frame mats, dice, counters and a set of 10-frame cards.
