I do however enjoy observing bugs from a very safe distance, and preferably using a microscope or magnifying glass of some sort. And as such, I love little buggy clipart images. They’re about 100x cuter than the real thing.
Fortuntaely, kids often like bugs too and these buggy make 10 pages are sure to be a bit of a hit. I hope…
This week we are doing BUGS! And a huge bonus, we have three contributors now! Yes, Cassie from 3Dinosaurs.com, Deidre from JDanielsMom.com and I will be making bug printables all week long. Don’t miss them (or just sign up for the newsletter to get the most up to date info!)
When it comes to memorizing math facts, I think memorizing what makes a ten is the most useful. There are so many times when being able to make a ten is handy so that tends to be the first set of facts we memorize.
Logi-Bear is working on these facts now. I actually forgot how adorable math facts and kindergarteners are.
How to Use the Buggy Make 10
Before working on these pages, I would recommend going over the 10 facts.
You can use dot markers, gems, or any small manipulative to make the rest of the ten frame. I would start by filling it the ten frame and then figuring out the addition problem.
The visual of the ten frame really helps solidify the idea of the different amounts adding up to 10.
After they dot the rest of the ten frame, have them count the dots or manipulatives. That number should go on the line of the addition problem.
They can double check their work by counting the bugs and the dots. If they have 10, they are correct!
