10-oh Song

A few months back I blogged about my students using the song Dynamite to practice the compliments of 10. We actually made a little music video. We will definately not be winning a Grammy, but anything that gets them learning different ways to make 10 is worth a shot!

Combinations of 10

Mrs. T's First Grade Class has a great way for children to show what they know about combinations to 10. This would be a great activity to do after your children have had a lot of experiences using manipulatives to make the combinations to 10.

10 More, 10 Less

Here is a fun game from the blog Oh My Classity Class. It helps children practice 10 more, 10 less, 1 more, 1 less. You could send it home with a hundreds chart for a homework assignment.

Here is a free resource from Math Learning Center you might want to check out. It is a free resource guide for using geometric blocks. My friend Kim also came up with the idea of going on a shape scavenger hunt with the iPod Touches. The children will go around school and take pictures of certain shapes. I will post more about this once we have figured out all the details.
