Practice Games & Centers

- Small Group Games and Centers
- Snap Cube Tower Bowling (snap cubes, worksheet, small ball – baseball sized will work nicely)
- Students make ten towers of ten snap cubes and place standing up on floor in arrangement they choose (like bowling pins), ball – students roll ball to knock down/bowl and record the equation on their worksheet to solve. Example: 10 – 4 = ?.

- Snap Cube Tower Bowling (snap cubes, worksheet, small ball – baseball sized will work nicely)
- Under the Bowl (worksheet, snap cubes, bowl)
- Students work with a partner and they have 10 cubes. One partner closes his/her eyes and the partner hides some of the under the bowl. The child opens his/her eyes and the pair tries to figure out how many cubes are under the bowl. Both kids say the number sentence and they both write it on the recording sheet.

- Pipe Cleaner/Bead Rings
- Bend pipe cleaner into circles with 10 beads on it as shown below – students can move the beads to see how different groupings can all make 10. Example: 2 beads on one side plus 8 on the other, or 5 and 5, etc. – still 10 beads on the ring).

Practice Games & Centers

- Small Group Games and Centers
- Tens Go Fish (playing cards)
- This game is played just like "Go Fish." Instead of asking for a card to match your card, you have to ask for a card that would add with one of your cards to make a sum of 10.
