## 10 Frame Math Semi Truck Activity

1-2-3 Come Work With 10 Frames With Me!

Ten frames are such a visual help for little ones.  I find that most of my kiddo's are visual and kinestetic learners.  I provided pictures and examples of things and plenty of math manipulatives, so they could do a lot of hands-on fun.  At first, children think that these are just toys; they later learn that the "toys" are wonderful learning TOOLS to help show and demonstrate math concepts.

I tried especially hard to design things with little boys in mind, as their attention span as a Y5 seemed quite a bit shorter than the girl's.

Anything to do with trucks was always a hit, so when I was fooling around with what could appropriately hold a 10-frame, that would be exciting to a boy, but fun for girls too,  a semi truck came to mind.

You can print off one and laminate, to use as a "teacher-led" instruction manipulative. Simply put it up on your white board, and using a dry erase marker, fill in a new number or equation each day.  By writing these on Popsicle sticks, and letting students choose them, you can keep track of what you've already covered.

Call on a student to make X's or bingo dots in the correct number of boxes. Using 2 colors to SHOW the 2 numbers in an equation, is extremely helpful. Make an extra 10 frame semi truck and put it in your Math Center, or if you are able to make an entire class set, allow students to choose the colors for their truck and add their school photo, so that it looks like they are driving their semi.

Younger students can work with single numbers to 20, while older students can work with math equations to 20.

This is a quick, easy and fun way to whole group practice and assess understanding.

I've also included 2 ten frames in one of the trucks, so that you can work with numbers greater than 10 and less than 21.

## Number Posters

1-2-3 Come Do A Whole Lot Of Math With Me!

It took me quite a few hours to design these math anchor charts, but it was well worth the effort as I think they turned out pretty spiffy.  I hope you enjoy them.

Print and laminate.  They make a terrific math bulletin board that you can refer to daily.

Laminate extra sets so that your students can cut them apart and make them into puzzles.
I’ve made a puzzle grid so students can use this as a template to place their pieces on.

They are great for games too.  Two sets can be used to make a Memory Match game.  Since there are 13 pieces to each poster, it would be a good idea to only have students Match 2 posters at a time.

Toss 2 cut up number posters into a container.  Have each child take out a piece and play “I Have; Who Has?”  A student with the #1 crayon can ask for any other piece to start building the puzzle on the floor or on the white board, if you decide to attach a magnet. Play continues ‘til however many puzzles you are working on, are completed.

Have students use the greater and less than symbols between the posters.

Review: fractions, colors, patterns, telling time, fact families, money, tally marks, ordinal numbers, number words, measurement with a ruler, +1 addition, sequencing numbers, counting groups and sets of objects, and using a ten frame for addition + these Common Core State Standards: K.CC.2, K.CC.4a, K.CC.4b, K.CC.4c, K.OA.1, K.OA.3, K.OA. 4, K.OA.5,  K.CC.6, K.CC.7, 1.MD.3, 1.G.3, RF.K.3c

I’ve made a blank 10-frame for you to run off so that students can show you addition or subtraction answers, after you give them a variety of equations.

Call out a question and have students use the anchor charts to point to the answer and then explain it.

Give students 2 different colored bingo dot markers and have them complete the ABAB pattern that’s on the 10-frame.Using the bingo dot markers have students show you their answers to equations you put on the board.

Ask children to compare the coins and see if there are other combinations that I could have used to show that number.Can they think of anything else that they do/use at school that could be added to the chart to explain that number.

Make two sets of posters and play “Speed” Students choose a partner; mix up the cards and see who can put theirs in order first.

Explain the fractions and reinforce the vocabulary that goes with it.   Call out a number and everyone begins counting from there. Sequence the cards backwards and “blast off.”  Have students sort the pieces into their matching piles.  i.e. students put all of the clocks in a pile and sequence them.

Wow! So much covered with a simple poster! Woo Hoo!   Click on the link to view/download the Math Anchor Charts

Thanks for visiting today.  I'm off to add some things to my pin boards.  I know what I think will take a few minutes, will likely turn into an hour, as there is so much "pinspiration" out there and it's quite addicting.  One pin leads to another, and then I hop over to that board, and all of a sudden the morning's gone! Anyone else out there on the same page?  Have a good one.

You asked for it, you got it!

The 123 Count With Me easy reader math booklets continue to be downloaded 100's of times a day!

Visitors have requested Valentines and Presidents, but I also whipped together one for Dental Hygiene Month, which was a big theme for my Y5's.

You can practice a variety of skills and standards with these cute booklets.

They are a fun way for your students to learn or review, write, recognize and read numbers and number words.

These latest additions also have the end punctuation left off, so that students can add it, and you can cover yet another CCSS!

1. Students read, trace and write the number and number word.
2. They see a number of themed items in a sentence and say it.
3. They spy the number in a sequence and circle it.
4. They X-out that many boxes or use a bingo dot marker or stamp in the 10 frame. ( I encourage my students to make a color pattern.)
5. They cut and glue the set/group to the matching numbered box.
• It only takes one time for students to need assistance and then they can work independently on their books.
• Do one a week or month, depending on your themes or needs of your students.
• They are great for Daily 5, something to do when they have finished their work,
• something to send home to do with parents,
• great for a sub folder or to send home with struggling students.

All Of The Packet includes:

• 30-60 number and word wall word flashcards, + number cards that count to 20.
• Covers for the flashcards to make Itty Bitty Books
• A + one more math skill sheet
