Counting to 10 

Make Ten Clip Cards

Children learning to count and add their numbers will definitely benefit from this activity. They will use their reasoning to figure out how many more scoops they will need to make ten.

I like to prepare the kids before they begin clipping and counting with their cards. We play a quick addition game where I ask and show the numbers on my hands: "How many more do I need to make ten if I have 2?" and I show them the number two on my fingers.

They will then tell me how many they think I will need and so on. We do this until I feel like everyone in the class understood the concept to play with their cards.
