Kindergarten age kids will have fun practicing counting and addition with this clever, back to school themed, Free School Bus Counting to 10 math activity!
Counting to 10
Are you preparing your kids to go back to school yet? Or perhaps you have started a new school year already? This school bus counting to 10 activity is perfect for the young ones heading to school and super fun too!
This school bus counting to 10 set of printables are similar to a Ten Frames activity except that it the 10 blocks are next to each other representing the bus windows. There are 10 places for children to ride the bus and you have ti fill the bus, so fun!
Simply print, laminate and cut the busses and the sum block cards. (Or if you’d rather use a dry erase pocket if it is easier). Add a dry-erase marker and a few buttons (see the different colors I used, to represent a variety of skin tones? Not necessary, but a good idea in a multi-racial school).
School Bus Math
Pick a bus card. First count the children already on the bus. Write down that number in the first circle of the sum card.
Use the buttons to fill the bus. This step is great for fine motor practice too!
Now count the buttons and write down the number in the second circle on the sum card. And you have your sum- 3+7= 10!
Addition within 10
Fill all ten of the bus cards and make all the sums to practice counting to 10 using different numbers! A great way to demonstrate combinations of number making ten: 0+10, 1+9, 2+8, 3+7, 4+6, 5+5!
Such a fun and hands-on way to practice counting to 10, discover combinations of 10 and develop fine motor skills too! Perfect for Back to School time!
