Fact Family for Making 10 – A Mental Math Strategy

The 2Js worked on fact families for 10 in math today.  Our brains like numbers that make 10 so it’s an excellent math strategy to have and build on for other future skills.  The students were in teams of 3.  Taking turns, one person rolled a 10 sided die while the other two used coloured snap cubes to create the corresponding fact family for 10.  For example, if a 7 was rolled, then the other students would figure out and show that 7+3=10 and 3+7=10.  Look at how well they worked during math today!
