This resource is aimed at pupils in middle classes or SEN pupils at the beginning of work on tens and units. Cut up the sheets into twenty separate cards and laminate the cards individually.
Pupils should work out the number that is represented on the abacus on the left side of each card and place a clothes peg on the correct number on the right hand side of the card.
This activity is especially suitable for pupils who may not be able to write answers but can work out the numbers on an abacus. It is a way for them to demonstrate their understanding of the concept of tens and units. It is also good for fine motor skills in the manipulation of the pegs onto the cards.
We frequently gave activities such as this for homework to our SEN pupils. It gave them the sense that they had homework like everyone else and it also allowed the parents to see what Maths topic we were currently working on.
