Teaching Math Skills with Technology:
Common Core Standards K.OA.2 Add and Subtract within 10
Today's math lesson was a review of ways to add to ten.
First, we practiced on our fingers- a tool that is always with us!
Then, we used a great free app- Find Sums by Math Tappers Their description from the iTunes store"MathTappers: Find Sums is a simple game designed to help learners to make sense of addition (and subtraction as a related operation), and then to support them in developing accuracy and improving their speed."
Right after, We used a deck of cards with A-J and the 10's Go Fish with the cheat sheet printable from www.kidscount1234.com by Shari Sloane "10s Go Fish - This game is played just like "Go Fish." Instead of asking for a card to match your card, you have to ask for a card that would add with one of your cards to make a sum of 10." Thanks Shari for your awesome math games! My students love them.
Using fingers, apples and ten frames, and playing cards my kindergartners "got" how to add to ten!
Using technology in meaningful, developmentally appropriate ways to make learning come alive and differentiate instruction so that all students achieve. I hope this blog is helpful to anyone utilizing technology with children. If you have found it useful, I appreciate you letting me know and sharing with others.
