# Tens Facts

### What you need:

• A set of cards with the face cards and number ten in each suit removed.
• 2 pieces of paper, with a “0" drawn on the right hand side.

### What to do:

Shuffle the cards and place them in a pile face down.

Take 2 cards and place them on the left hand side of each piece of paper. This forms 2 numbers that are multiples of ten. For example 70 and 60 are shown as:

Repeat using other cards to make other addition problems. Take turns with your child to deal out the cards and solve the problems.

### What to expect your child to do:

Use the addition facts they know to help them find the answers. For example, if they know 4 + 8 is 12, they can use this to identify that 40 + 80 = 120.

### He Whakawhitinga Kōrero:

• Riwhiriwhia ngā kāri, ka whakaputu ai ko ngā mata ki raro. (Shuffle the cards and put them face down in a pile.)
• Tangohia ētahi kāri e rua. Whakatakotoria ō kāri ki te taha mauī o ēnei kore hei hanga i ētahi tau ngahuru e rua. (Pick up two cards. Put your cards down on the left of these two zeros, so you make two tens numbers.)
• Tāpiria ēnei tau ngahuru e rua. (Add together these two tens numbers,)
• E hia te tapeke? (How many is the total?)
• E mōhio ana koe ki te [3 tāpiria te 5]. Nō reira he aha te otinga o te [30 tāpiria te 50]? (You know what [3 plus 5] is. So what is the answer to [30 plus 50]?)
