Rolling for Ten Frames
So this morning I was doing a simple lesson on using ten frames to do counting, as well as adding to 10. It was also the first try out of the LARGE dice. These were made from large cardboard boxes wrapped in butcher paper. Then I took plastic sleeves, cut them in half, and taped them to the 6 faces of the box. I originally wanted my dice to look like traditional dice with dots, but this way they can be more versatile and can be used for different subjects. The kids really enjoyed the lesson and were 100% engaged. We started by doing a few practice rolls in the classroom, and practicing counting how many were in the ten frame. Then we took our papers, pencils and dice out into the hall so we had more room to throw.
