Ten for Me and GIVEAWAY

GIVEAWAY CLOSED!!!




Sylvan Dell continues to bless me by sending me their latest books and *man* was I excited to see how many MATH centered books there were this time around. Ten for me is a fantastic book about two kids who go on a butterfly hunt. Each day they come home with a total of ten butterflies between the two of them. The wording is simple enough for students to chime in, but not too simple in that they would get bored. As I was reading the book to my class, my students recorded the addition facts on a whiteboard. We then charted the addition facts as a class on cute little butterflies to keep.


I put this outside our classroom and after our morning restroom break, my students have to whisper read these eleven addition facts to themselves before they can enter the classroom.


To close out the whole group part of this lesson my students completed this exit slip. They can write in any addition sentence that they want as long as the sum is ten! If your district is like mine, you are up to your elbows in exit slips :)!


I decided to create a math work station that goes along with the book. My fabulous teaching partner Cathy let me borrow these "really cool" bugs to use (I always make fun of Cathy for being a pack rat,but I should probably stop teasing her since I *borrow* so much from her!)



The idea is that the student will grab all ten bugs between his two hands and write an addition sentence that corresponds.
