Early in the year I spend lots of time trying to get my students to mentally 'Make 10'. This early addition skill helps them with the other number outcomes that follow throughout the year. Here is a close-up of one of my ready to use math work stations that are available at my TPT store.
How to play ~ Each player chooses one of the four game boards and all movie tickets are turned upside down. On their turn each player chooses 2 tickets. If the tickets 'Make 10' then they place the tickets on one of the movie strips on their game board. The first player to fill their game board wins! Sometimes I want my students to complete a recording sheet, but other times I do not. For this reason I have included 2 different "I Can..." cards with this activity.
Just playing this game makes me want some movie popcorn :)
