- Show students a ten frame and explain that it is a tool for counting and adding numbers up to ten.
- Introduce the concept of finding a number that makes ten when added to a given number.
- Display a ten frame with a specific number of counters (e.g., 4 counters).
- Ask students to determine how many more counters are needed to make ten.
- Model the process of adding counters to the ten frame to make ten.
- Repeat this process with different numbers, gradually increasing the difficulty.
- Divide the students into pairs and provide each pair with a ten frame, counters, and number cards.
- Instruct students to take turns selecting a number card and representing that number on the ten frame with counters.
- Have the partner determine how many more counters are needed to make ten and add the necessary counters to the ten frame.
- Encourage students to help each other and discuss their findings.
- Circulate around the room to provide support and guidance as needed.
- Provide each student with a ten frame, counters, and number cards.
- Instruct students to work independently to represent a number on the ten frame, determine how many more counters are needed to make ten, and add the necessary counters to the ten frame.
- Monitor students' progress and provide support as needed.
- Provide students with a ten frame worksheet to practice finding numbers that make ten when added to a given number.
- Encourage students to discuss their understanding with their parents and ask for help if needed.
- Provide each student with a small whiteboard and marker.
- Display a number on the board and ask students to write the number that makes ten when added to the displayed number.
- Collect the whiteboards to assess students' understanding.
- Formative assessments will be conducted during the lesson to monitor students' understanding of using ten frames to find numbers that make ten when added to a given number.
- The exit ticket and progress monitoring assessments will be used to determine students' mastery of the concept.
- Review the concept of finding a number that makes ten when added to a given number using ten frames.
- Ask students to share a strategy they used to find the missing number.
- Remind students to practice their skills at home with the provided worksheet.
- Students can practice addition and subtraction within 20 using ten frames.
- Students can create their own ten frame problems and share them with classmates for additional practice.
- Students can use ten frames to explore patterns and relationships between numbers.
- For students who struggle with counting or number recognition, provide additional support through one-on-one instruction, manipulatives, or visual aids.
- For students who have difficulty with fine motor skills, provide larger counters or adapted ten frames that are easier to manipulate.
- For students who need extra support, pair them with a peer mentor or offer small group instruction to reinforce the concept of using ten frames to find numbers that make ten.
No Video Available
- Use real-life examples to help students relate ten frames to everyday scenarios, such as sharing cookies or arranging items.
- Encourage students to use different strategies, such as counting on or using number bonds, to find the number that makes ten.
- Create a classroom anchor chart with examples of ten frame problems to reinforce the concept and provide a reference for students.
- Students may think that the ten frame must always be filled completely, rather than understanding that it can represent numbers up to ten.
- Students may confuse the process of finding a number that makes ten with simple addition, not recognizing the specific goal of reaching ten.
- Students may not initially understand the spatial arrangement of the ten frame, placing counters haphazardly instead of filling one row before moving to the next.
Common Core Standard:
K.OA.A.4 - For any number from 1 to 9, find the number that makes 10 when added to the given number, e.g., by using objects or drawings, and record the answer with a drawing or equation.
