“Now for some fun!” giggled Pippety

Number bonds to 20.

Make a number bonds bead bracelet!

Get some string and thread 10 pieces of pasta onto it.

Number Bonds to Ten beads - Slide the beads side to side to see various ways of making 10 Maths Eyfs, Math Literacy, Guided Math, Numeracy, Kindergarten Math, Fun Math, Teaching Numbers, Math Numbers, Math Resourcesconcentration | The Montessori Motherload

Move one piece of pasta to the side so that there is a gap. How many are left – 9. The number bond is 1+9=10

Then systematically move another piece of pasta – now we have got 2 on this side and 8 on the other – 2+8=10.

Continue until you have all the number bonds to 10 – don’t forget 0+10=10 and 10+0=10

Look at the ones which are reversed; 2+8 and 8+2.

Now try with 20 pieces of pasta on a string.

0+20=20            20=0=20

1+19=20            19+1=20

2+18=20            18+2=20

Compare your findings – are there any patterns? 8+2=10 and 18+2=20


Be Active-but calm
