Double Ten-Frame Stamping

I whipped this up for my math stamping center.   Students identify the number of dots on the double ten-frame and then stamp the correct answer.  If you have the dotted number stamps they will also need to trace the number.

This Week....

We only have 2 1/2 days of school this week.  Two days down and a half a day tomorrow to go.  My class was surprisingly well behaved and on task today.  It is so difficulty for Kinders this time of the year.  Tomorrow I plan on doing something fun with them to help the day go faster.

Here is a picture of the turkey toss, count and dot center I posted previously.  I let them color the turkey when they are done.  Notice we are using the tiny plastic containers to help contain our dice when we toss them.  I just picked them up from Dollar Tree over the weekend. It has made activities that require dice much more manageable.  No one loses a die (or dice) and it is a lot quieter.

Here is another activity I posted that we are also doing this week.

Showing Number on a Ten-Frame Center

On the first two pages you will find cards for you to print, laminate and post around the room.  The second two pages you will need to copy back to back.  Students look for the appropriate picture cards and read the number on the card.  Then they record the number on the tens frames by drawing dots.
