Ten on the Spot (Ten Frame Game) GIVEAWAY!


Learning and mastering ten frames is high on our list things to work on this year!  I am super excited about  Learning Resources®10 on the Spot!™ Ten-Frame Game ! Kids love games and this ten frame learning tool is VERY effective!

How the game works:
This adorable ladybug ten frame game plays just like BINGO, but instead of matching you are trying to make 10!  Each player picks a ladybug spot, turns it over and covers the numbered pieces that together make 10.  Each ladybug has two sides, ten frame pictures for beginners on one side, and the numbers for more advanced players on the other side.

What is included:
There are 72 spots (game pieces) and six double-sided, very durable cards.

Here is the game "in action":

Each player gets a ladybug. The side shown below is for beginners and has the picture ten frame. 
This is perfect for Kindergarten...

When it is your turn, flip over a ladybug spot and see if you have a ten frame that adds up to 10...

This was the PERFECT challenge for Sophia (my Kindergartener)!  
I LOVE that Audrey (her older sister) is so eager to help! 
Audrey (on the right) is using the side with numbers instead of pictures.  
This is perfect for more advanced players.

Audrey is showing Sophia how to play.  Here is a has a ladybug spot with 5 in the ten frame.  She needs to turn over a spot with 5 more in the ten frame to make 10!

Here is another example…
If you turn over an 8 ten frame, you need to find the ten frame that adds up to 10, which is 2.
You add the spot to the ladybug.  Whoever covers all there spots first, WINS!

Turn over a spot...

Find the match that makes 10...

Learning becomes a GAME!!
priceless...

A happy little learner = a happy mommy!

Guess who one this game?!?!

Such a FABULOUS and effective game!

We got a head start on our November packet this week because we are headed to the Grand Canyon!  
Here are a few printables in action…

Roll a dice and trace a shape! So fun!!

 This little Moffatt Girl was excited to see which shape would reach it to the top first!
Learning is at its BEST when it becomes a GAME!

As you can see, we probably need some practice with our circle, which look a bit like ovals ;)

 SPINNERS!
Make a paperclip spinner and spin a number. 
Color the ten frame by the color code that matches the turkey!

I was wondering if she was ready for a spinner…
YES…she was!!!  She wanted to "play" this game again and again! 
This was perfect for practice with quickly recognizing ten frames.  
If the number was greater than five, she had to count and find the correct ten frame.
SO EFFECTIVE for her!


Roll a die and color the turkey!
I LOVE this because it helps kids to see a number on a die and automatically recognize it. 
Perfect number sense "game" and coloring practice for fine motor skills!


Turkeys Count to TEN!
I found a use for all those little stickers I have!  We used them on our Ten Frame page and it was a HUGE hit! This made this simple printable HIGHLY effective, more engaging and helped master this concept!

Roll a die and count a ten frame!
Again, I love that this game can help with automatically "seeing" the number on the ten frame.  Obviously she had to count numbers beyond 5, but she us getting better and better at this!

Learning becomes a GAME!

I pulled out our markers (washable of course) and let her use those to write the number.
I find that using a variety of materials really helps maintain high interest!

What Comes Next?
Working with the cut and paste number turkeys was fun!

Since the second line didn't go in number order from the first, this activity really made her stop and thing about counting on from any given number.

So focused…so engaged!

Count and Graph PUMPKINS!
We used dot markers instead of crayons and it made it SO much fun!!

For our Color by Sight Word Page, we used paints!
I am pretty sure she thought we were doing an art project! 
She worked on sight word recognition and building a simple sentence with this page.

 Using the watercolor paints made her really focus on doing her BEST work!  She wanted to paint it perfectly so she paid careful attention to each sight word!



Cutting out the words, unscrambling and building a sentence!


Turkey Addition to 5!
We used those cute little turkeys at the top to help add!

I wanted to make it even more concrete and hands-on, so I used some bug math manipulatives!

Another Color by Sight Word page with watercolor pencils!


 I am not sure if she would have done as nice of a job if we just used crayons!  
LOVE it!!
 Building the sentence...

 Writing the sentence…

This was a simple introduction for counting by 5's and tracing the numbers...

We used our markers with this FUN page!
Roll a die, trace a repetitive sentence with sight word and a CVC word that you rolled!

As you can see, she rolled a 2 in the first sentence and traced: 
Look for the _____.  She filled in the blank with hen.
For the second sentence, she rolled a 4 and will write:
Look for the bed.


She was pretty proud of herself!
