Dear Family,

In this chapter, your student learns about the numbers 6 through 10. Your

student will count a number of objects, then color the same number of boxes in

a ten frame.

ten frame

After learning about each quantity, your student will learn to write the

numeral.

At the end of the chapter, your student writes the numbers in order both

forward and backward.

This chapter's vocabulary includes exposure to the written number words six,

seven, eight, nine, and ten. Your student uses the words in conversation but is

not expected to write the words.

Here are a few activities you can use with your student to practice numbers to

ten.

• Make a ten frame by cutting the last two egg cups off an empty egg

carton. Have your student count up to ten small objects (such as beans,

coins, or buttons) as they drop each object into a cup of the ten-frame

carton. Change the activity by starting with up to ten objects in cups of

the ten-frame carton. Have your student name and write the number of

objects.

• Play a game using fingers on both hands to count and to name numbers.

Take turns. One player holds up six or more fingers, and the other

player names the number.

• Make a poster together showing objects that are commonly found in

groups of six, seven, eight, nine, or ten, such as six juice boxes in a

package, seven days in a week, eight legs on a spider, nine squares in

tic-tac-toe, and ten pins in bowling.

• Show your student page numbers in a book. Have your student count up

to page 10 and back to page 1 by flipping pages.
