Make 10, 20 & 100

It is called Make Ten.

We play in pair with a deck of number cards. Each player picks 7 cards from the deck. Look at your cards and find two cards that add-up (count up) to 10. For example: 8 and 2 makes 10. If you can make ten, then put those two cards together in a 10-pairs pile and then pick two more cards. If you can’t make ten, then say ‘pass’ and pick a new card. Switch turns with each other until all the cards on the deck are picked and all the pairs that make ten are found. We will examine our 10-pairs pile all together.

Version B)

They have a deck of 36 cards with just the numbers 1 through 9. After they mix up the cards, they put them into a pile.

Below are the rules:

• Deal five number cards to each player.

• Use any three of your cards.

• Pick three numbers that add to a number near 20.

• Write a number sentence with your three cards and the total that is near 20.

Version C)

They have a deck of 36 cards with just the numbers 1 through 9. After they mix up the cards, they put them into a pile.

Below are the rules:

• Deal six digit cards to each player.

• Select any four of your cards to make 2 numbers. Each number would be a two-digit number.

• Arrange the numbers and then add them to get a sum as near 100 as possible

Maple Syrup

On Wednesday one of the mom’s came to school to tell us more about maple syrup. We learned that she used to go and get maple syrup and also, that the maple syrup we had on Wednesday was from her mother’s farm. We ended our share with eating french toast and putting maple syrup all over it. It was Delicious!

Publishing Party

We started the week by celebrating another round of published books. This time we used SonicPic to publish our books on Youtube. I have posted the link on the digital learning blogs. The students enjoyed listening to each others stories, and it gave everyone full momentum to continue working on new stories. During the next couple of weeks we will work spelling strategies while writing our own stories.unnamed-4 unnamed-3 unnamed-2 unnamed-6 unnamed-5 unnamed-1
