Activity:

#### Using Materials

Problem: Brita has 10 rabbits and she gives 2 rabbits to her friend. How many rabbits does Brita now have?
Write 10 - 2 on the board. The students put 10 counters on blank tens frames and
remove 2. Without counting encourage students to recognise instantly that there are 8
counters left. Record the answer on the board.
Examples. Word stories and recording for: 10 - 3, 4 + 5, 10 - 6, 2 + 5, 2 + ? = 7

#### Using Imaging

Shielding: Problem: Jonah has 5 jelly beans and he gets 3 more jelly beans from a
friend. How many jelly beans does Jonah now have?
Write 5 + 3 on the board. Out of the students. sight build 5 on an empty tens frame.
Ask students to describe how you have built it. Drawing pictures in the air may help.
