Spin for Tens (a freebie)

Hi everyone!  It's Angelia from Extra Special Teaching stopping by to share a quick freebie with you guys.  



I don't know about you, but sometimes I feel like I have to pull out ALL the tricks to keep my students engaged and on task.  We have recently been working on understanding a bundle of ten tens makes a hundred.  We've also worked on counting tens past one hundred.

Well, let me tell you.....it's been some rough going!  I've been redirecting and practicing and redirecting and practicing.  I finally decided that I needed to try something new.  For some reason adding a spinner or a pair of dice suddenly increases my students' engagement.  It's amazing how that happens!


My kids were spinning away and practicing like I wish they had been doing all along!  I haven't given my final assessment yet, but they all showed a lot more understanding after this activity.

If you could use this center in your class, just click on the picture below to download your freebie.  There's two versions included in this file.


Happy spinning!
