Make a Ten Train Game
Being able to recognize and make tens is an essential skill for building other higher level math skills. Here is a game I created recently for practice with making 10s.
Materials for Preparation
The number cards can be printed with the train track pattern (see below) on the back if you like. You will need two sets of numbers for the game. Cut the cards and separate them into two piles.
Cut out one ten frame if you plan to use it.
Materials for Play
pennies/pom poms or bingo chips (for ten frame)
ten frame (optional)
two sets of game cards
How to Play
Place one set of cards in a pile face down and the other set of cards face up in front of the player.
The player picks one card and places it in one of the train hoppers. Below, I picked a 4.
Player then needs to figure out 4 + what number = 10.
At this point, the player can use one of three strategies to help with the answer. He can mentally figure it out, use the ten frame to determine the answer OR use the tens fact paper. In this example, he chose to use the ten frame.
He placed 4 chips on the ten frame and then counted the empty spaces to figure out that the answer is 6.
He placed the card with the number 6 in the second hopper. Then remove both cards and repeat until all the cards have been used.

AFTER SCHOOL LINK UP
Love these ideas from last week’s linky:
The After School Link Up is a great place to share ideas and to find new ideas to do with your children after school or in your homeschool. The After School Link Up goes live every Monday. So, if you are a blogger, an educator or just some one looking for some good ideas, be sure to stop by Boy Mama Teacher Mama (or the other co-hosts) on Mondays and see what others have to share.
We would love to have you link up your School-Age Post (Ages 5 and up) about your learning week after school including Crafts, Activities, Playtime and Adventures that you are doing to enrich your children’s lives after their day at school, homeschool or on the weekend! When linking up, please take a moment to comment on at least one post linked up before yours and grab our After School button to include a link on your post or site!
