Develop Kindergarten fluency, number sense, & problem solving using Building Fluency Using Problem Types: Sums to 10 & Differences within 10

How does it work? 

  • Which problem type do you want to work on? Choose from Join, Separate, Part-Part-Whole, or Mixed problems. Or if your students are ready for a challenge, use Numberless problems.
  • What context do you want to use? Choose from the park, the farm, or a child’s room. Story mats can be printed in color or black & white.
  • How do you want your students to model their thinking? After they model on the story mat, then they draw pictures and explain their thinking using ten frames, number bonds, number lines, and Part-Part-Whole mats and write equations to match.

PowerPoints are interactive for teacher demonstration. Drag counters to make a picture, fill in ten frames or Part-Part-Whole mats, and show number bonds. PowerPoints are also fully editable. So you can change the numbers or the whole problem. 

Use in whole group and small group instruction. Perfect for guided math.
