Here is an activity we did when working on numbers to 10.
|Using pictures (dots) and numbers to record finding.|
When done, we had a math talk to discuss the different ways they could make 10. While doing so, they would get so excited, and shout out things such as "Look, I had 3 and 7, but he had 7 and 3. It's the same, but backwards", or "See, I have 9 and 1 and I know it's right because 1 less than 10 is 9." It's wonderful! Their learning goes beyond counting a set of 10!
