Adding 9 Valentine. The idea is that the children will be taught that the easy way to add 9 to any number is to first add 10 and then count back 1. As a memory recall aid, the mittens denote the fingers to remind children to add ten first!! As always, this resource is differentiated so that some learners can cut and stick the numbers into the correct boxes and for others they can write the numbers into the correct boxes. I have made this a black & white resource as all of us are coping with ink costs I expect and allowing children to add some colour also aids in the enjoyment as well as improves fine motor skills.
