The Other Part of Ten – an on-line game

Thanks to Lara, I have another way cool game to share for hooking into the visual aspect of thinking ten.🙂

This game, called “The Complement of Ten” asks children to find the complement – or the other part – of ten using ten frames. Kids drag the images to fit the quantities together. It really relies on visualizing, and makes part-whole thinking more like a visual puzzle than number facts in isolation.

Thanks Lara!

Here’s a snapshot of elements of the game. See how the 2 is reversed to “fit” the 8?
