# Picture Book of 10: Showing Our Ways to Make 10

Lesson 4 of 4

Kindergarten and 1st grade

45-60 minutes

**Description**

Students explore multiple ways to make ten with tens frames and drawings, with a final project of a class book.

**Materials**

For each student:

### Introduce

Share the literature book with your students. Be sure to stop and discuss the illustrations. Ask the students to tell you the equation that would match the illustration/text. Be sure to pull out all the combinations of 10.

### Explore

Explain to the children that they will be making a class book similar to the literature shared in class.

*ELL Accommodation: Give all students time to Think Pair Share about what they will be illustrating. *

Each child will then get the Picture book of 10 template for their page of the book. Each student will roll a die and write that addend on the template. The student will write an equation, make a model on a ten frame, and draw an illustration.

Questions:

What *combination* did you make using the addend that you rolled?

Can you add words or labels to your illustration?[MP2]

Does your ten frame match your equation? [MP4]

Does your illustration match your equation? [MP2]

### Synthesize

Collect the pages from the students and gather them on the rug. One page at a time, the teacher covers all but the illustration, then asks the students:

- What is the equation?
- What combination of 10 is used in this drawing/tens frame?

Make the pages into a class book to be placed in the class library for students to read.

### Assessment

Optional

The teacher will use a rubric to evaluate student work.
Get **Rubric for Picture Book of 10** from Materials section above available as a download.

### Extensions

- Include problems in your number talks that would require students to use the making 10 strategy to solve.

Examples:

- How does 6+4 help me to solve 6+5?
- How would 6+4 help me to solve 6+3?

Share the book

*My Sister Ate One Hare* by Bill Grossman. Ask the students to find combinations of 10 with the items the sister ate. (Example 2 snakes + 8 worms = 10 items)

### Teacher Reflection

- Were your students able to successfully create their book using multiple representations for each combination?
