Here’s a set of two apple-themed Common Core ten frames games.
Ten frames are a great tool for subitizing, comparing, and practicing complements of ten. The bright apple theme is fun for fall, but don’t be surprised if you find yourself turning to this easy-to-prepare set all year for math centers and small group instruction!
* Apple Season Spin-and-Add:
Complements of 10: K.OA.4, 1.OA.8
Addition facts 1-10: 1.OA.6
Players spin the spinner and find a card that matches the number to complete a set of addends that total 10.
* Climb the Tree with Me!:
Subtraction Facts 1-10: 1.OA.6
Players “climb trees” by subtracting the numbers shown on
two ten frame cards, and moving up that many spaces.
