Chain Link Number Bonds

chain

Students use paper (2 different colours), scissors & glue to make paper chain number bonds. Attach a card at the top or bottom to record the sum.

If you don’t have access to coloured paper you could get students to colour the paper before cutting into strips.

We made bonds for 10 & a sum of 20.
(Although I think my little boy was more excited about cutting, glueing & linking, than making sums!)

Below  you’ll also find a link to a YouTube clip “Friends of Ten.”

Popstick Tally Marks

A TALLY TALE

Five stick friends were walking straight and tall.
The fifth one tripped and he began to fall.
His friends caught him, he didn’t touch the ground.
So from now on, when tallying, show the fifth mark lying down.
