This resource is aimed at pupils in middle classes or SEN pupils working on tens and units. It is based on place value and the ability of pupils to subtract ten from the number given.
Cut up the sheets into twenty separate cards and laminate them individually. Pupils should look at the number in the teal box on the left side of each card, focusing on the tens, subtract ten and place a clothes peg on the correct answer on the right of the card from the three options given.
The pupil may use concrete materials or even a calculator to work out the answers.
This pack could be split up into two packs of ten 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 what ten less is. It is a way for them to demonstrate their understanding of place value. 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.
