10 Frame Games to use with the Sky Chart
# 1: Jerry Mcguire " You complete me"
Since there are 2 ten frames, one will be for you and one for your child.
You say a number, such as , "6" then your child looks at their 10 frame and says what number you have to add to 6 to get 10 ( or 20)- use your laser or flash light to explain.
Your child will tell you what number you add to the number you chose and then you both look at each other and say: " You complete me".
Sounds sillly but kids love it!
# 2: How are you doing that?
This is a great time to experiment with your child. Ask your child an addition or subtraction problem.
How did they get their answer? Talk through it. You may see where they are making mistakes or learn a new way of thinking about numbers!
Here is an example: My son might say 20-7 so he shines his laser light on each row of 5 counting: 5, 10, 15, 20. He now subtracts 5 all at once and gets 15. Then subtracts 2 ones (counting each one), to get 13.
# 3: Know one...know three for free!
If you know one addition, subtraction, multiplication, or division fact you know the other three related facts in that family(fact families). Don't forget! If you are subtracting 5 from 7 and get 2 then, you already know.... 2 + 5 = 7, 5 + 2 = 7 and 7 – 2 = 5!
