Teen Numbers...Why Are You so Tricky?

Teen numbers can be tricky for even our best students! Hopefully this post will provide you with some extra goodies to help your children with those tricky numbers! The first goodie I found was a great YouTube:

The second goodie is from Mrs. May's room.  She used this whole group and in stations. The students draw a card and then build that amount using tens frames.  You can see from the picture that the student is building 77 using 7 regular tens frames and building ones with the red chips on the single ten frame.  Common Core KNBT 1 says numbers 11-19 but if your students have masters those then extra practice with higher numbers would be great!

The third goodie is from Mrs. Gipson's room.  She is using ten frames to take attendance.  The ten frames are up on her white board with painters tape....Easy!  She has photographs of each student and a magnet on the back so they can be easily placed.  Love it!  Can't you see all the work that can be done with tens and ones or even addition/subtraction??
 My last goodie is a freebie for all the hard work you have put in this year!  Being a teacher is crazy this time of you so here's a little gift to you!  Thank you teachers!!
I hope you have a great summer!  Don't forget about the summer workshops I will be holding in June.  Check out your Inservice catalogs.
