The Candy Cane ten frame game we just read the number, subitized or counted the candy canes, and added the appropriate number of tiny erasers to make 10. We didn't worry about adding the number on the line to make the full equation. We will add that part tomorrow.
We had been seeing many bad choices. Then we brought the "Super Friend chain" or "Helping Hand" chain back into play. So many nice choices are encouraged by this chain! Every time it touches the floor, we take a piece of paper out of our idea jar with something written on it. Last week we had a trip to a fantastic Lakeland park which the children thoroughly enjoyed! I wonder what we will get next time we have reached the floor.
