We are so thrilled to release our 37th Math Pack! You can use our Math Packs as stand-alone units and do not need to use all of them or in any particular order. The order is sequenced and progresses steadily.

The bridging strategy in addition is a powerful strategy that can be used flexibly across a range of areas in maths and can be applied in many ways. This pack will help your students begin to understand the concept of bridging to ten. We start with a review of the combinations that make ten.

These 5 activities will help
• review combinations that make ten
• learn to look for numbers that easily 'make a ten'
• bridge to ten
• remember bridge to ten strategy facts
Each of the 5 small-group activities has:

• detailed instructions
• playing cards/boards/templates
• a worksheet (either a recording worksheet or a fun-follow-up)

The activities included in this bundle are:

#### Making Ten

We've included 3 fun ways for students to review the combinations that make ten - 5 and 5, 6 and 4, 3 and 7, 8 and 2, 9 and 1. These need to be very familiar for the 'bridge to ten' strategy to develop.

All aboard! There are 3 carriages on the train and students need to determine which 2 numbers would be best side-by-side to make an easy-ten (or twenty). They will also write the number problem and answer.

#### Fill a Ten

To find the total of 2 numbers, students will fill a ten frame before adding the rest. They will naturally see how some numbers are so near to ten that the bridging strategy makes sense!

#### Domino Dots

Students will visualise sliding dots on a domino to make a ten before finding the total. This is a good way to transition from concrete to abstract and encourage the visualisation of math. A set of cards with the 'ten' featured in pink is included as a standard blackline version.

#### Fact Cards

The pack culminates with an activity that encourages students to remember all the addition facts they have learnt through the other 4 activities and become super-fluent with them. Students will memorize the addition facts that relate to 'bridge to ten' strategy and become.

These activities can be used in a structured game rotation program, as math centers or in guided math. Once taught, they also make fantastic 'fast-finisher' activities for revision of key concepts

We have other Math Packs that teach more basic concepts for addition:
