The Littlest Pet Shop:
Thirty 10-Frame Model:
One of the great aspects of these cookie sheets is that the students can write in expo marker below the 10-frames when making their equations, and presto, you got an interactive activity that can also make a quick assessment.
Below the Line cut is a step by step tutorial on how I made the 10-frames, but all I used were things from either walmart or the dollar store.
Cookie Sheets $1 each from Dollar tree (I got 5 of them)
Magnetic Buttons $5.97 for 50 from Walmart
The stickers were like $2 per pack of 100 they were in the clearance section and I had to cut the bodies off some of the pet shop animals so they would fit in the circle.
Total investment: $8.97
Below the cut, a step by step on how I created the 10-frame on the cookie sheet!
What is your favorite manipulative to use in the classroom?
1) You can use the magnets to hold a 10-frame model on the cookie sheet.
2) Trace carefully with a sharpie and carefully mark the spots where the the lines are. Then you can use a ruler to connect the dots.
3) Slide the 10-frame down to make the center line.
