In-class maths: Adding and subtracting to 10
After an instructional maths group with the teacher, the children are often encouraged to show their learning and practice the skills through an independent task or game. This group has been working on adding and subtracting numbers to 10. These questions are called "change unknown" because they're trying to determine the missing number. They can be tricky to work out!
A word problem we might use to accompany these number problems would be something similar to "Miss Russell had 6 lollipops at the start of the day. Now she only has 5 left. How many did she eat?" :)
