Dinosaur Addition with Ten Frame
Since math is a concrete subject and not abstract, it should be taught in a hands-on manner with lots of manipulatives. Using manipulatives allows us to have a better understanding of what numbers mean so we are better prepared for abstract math concepts like number equations. The hands-on tools are also incredibly beneficial for our tactile learners.
This Dinosaur Addition Activity is an engaging way to combine hands-on math with abstract equations.
