This resource is aimed at pupils in middle classes or SEN pupils at the beginning of work on addition of tens and units. It is based on addition without regrouping.
Cut up the sheets into thirty-two separate cards and laminate them individually. Pupils should work out the sum on the left side of each card (adding tens & adding units to get an answer) and place a clothes peg on the correct answer on the right of the card.
The pupil may use concrete materials or even a calculator to work out the answers.
This pack could be split up into smaller packs if so desired by the teacher
This activity is especially suitable for pupils who may not be able to write answers but can work out the addition sum. It is a way for them to demonstrate their understanding of addition without regrouping. 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.
This activity could also be used as an independent work task completed by a pupil in their work station.
