One of our new activities for Math by Myself during Daily 5 Math is to practice different ways to make numbers 1-10. The student takes a chart that says "Ways to Make 10" (and other numbers) with two circles on it, a dry erase board, marker, eraser and 10 counters. They can choose any number 1-10 to work with. Once they pick their number, they count that many out and put them on the chart. Then by moving various amounts from circle to circle, they create different ways to make that number and write it on their dry erase board into a number bond.
