Megan and I joined together to make this new number packet! Here’s what it has! We just listed it on tpt.
There are a variety of games for dot plates, rekenreks, fives frames, tens frames and dominoes. For each of the tools there are games that address these common core standards:
· Solve addition and subtraction word problems with 10/20.
· Identify whether the number is greater than or less than another number.
· Relate counting to addition and subtraction.
· Decompose numbers less than or equal to 10 into pairs in more than one way.
· Represent addition and subtraction with objects, fingers, mental images, drawings, sounds, acting out situations, verbal explanations, expressions, or equations.
· Fluently add and subtraction within 5/10.
· Add and subtraction within 10/20.
· Determine the unknown whole number in an addition or subtraction equation.
· Determine if equations involving addition and subtraction are true or false.
· Solves addition and subtraction problems within 10/20.
· For any number from 1 to 9, find the number that makes 10 when added to the given number.
· Understand subtraction as an unknown addend problem.
The same games are played with each of the math tools allowing you to spend time practicing the standards instead of teaching another new game. There are 8-9 games for each tool.
For each tool (rekenreks, fives frames, etc.) the following games and items are included:
· Mini Lesson Questions for “Math Talks”
· Teacher Set
· Student Set
· My Number Books
· Number Riddles
· Boot Stompin’ Game
· Memory Dominoes
· Domino Dice
· Make 5, Make 10
The large sets of rekenreks, fives frames, tens frames, dot plates and dominoes are used in large group. Questions are provided for each tool that can be used in mini lessons or during your “math talk” or mental math time. For example the questions might be:
1. Flash a domino card. Say, “My card has 6 dots. Make your card have enough dots to make 10 dots together.” Repeat.
2. Flash a domino. Ask, “Was that closer to 5 or closer to 10?” Repeat.
Your kiddos will say YeeHaw!....and so will you!

You were born to be a kindergarten teacher and create activities that engage the students and teachers! Another great unit that I cannot wait to buy from you! I am going to be presenting in INDY at the SDE conference. I was hoping to see you there. I guess we will have to cross paths another time. Enjoy your school year with your daughters!
