Sweet & Simple Saturday Post #2


Welcome back for week 2! I hope you enjoyed your week 1 freebie!! If you are unfamiliar with this series, Sweet & Simple Saturday posts are meant to share a nice, simple freebie with you. It will be a simple game, activity, craftivity, graphic organizer, etc. I plan on offering freebies for multiple grade levels and subject areas so they will be useful to lots of you out there!

Today's freebie is from my favorite subject--MATH! Just like last week's freebie..... ;) Don't worry--next week will be a different subject.

You may remember this picture from My Math Block Mini-Series post from a few months ago:

I used this game as part of a lesson one day and after that added it to our math station repertoire. I spruced up the original for you and included a few variations of the game in the file:

VERSION 1




Materials
  • a 10-sided die
  • egg carton (or other type of ten-frame)
  • counters (2 different colors or types)
  • recording sheet
Procedure:
  1. Roll the die.
  2. Place that number of counters in/on the ten-frame.
  3. Fill in the rest of the ten-frame using a different color or different type of counter.
  4. Complete the number sentence.

VERSION 2







Materials
  • egg carton (or other type of ten-frame)
  • counters (2 different colors or types)
  • recording sheet
Procedure:
  1. In this version, the students will determine how many more counters are needed to make 10 using a predetermined number. The predetermined number goes on the first blank and the missing addend goes in the box. Place the indicated number of counters in/on the ten-frame.
  2. Fill in the rest of the ten-frame using a different color or different type of counter.
  3. Complete the number sentence.


Easy peasy!! Your students will love it! :)

Enjoy your freebie!!!
