Activities to teach partitioning to 10

Discussion in 'Early Years' started by hyssop_puppy, Oct 12, 2011.

  1. Using paper plates and a piece of wool or string. Children put a number of cubes on the plate as directed and then partition it into two sets. Ask how many they have on each side of the plate. Done as a group or even a class, note down different ways children have partitioned the original number.
    Using fingers to make numbers, tell them they must use both hands, ask them to show you a given number.
    Partitioning numbers is a lead into number bonds at this level.

    Use string with 10 beads on, or abacus? 10 fingers ......... but quite hard to bend fingers down to find all the different combinations
