Instructions for Ways to make 10
It’s really important for kids to know the different combinations to make 10. Why? Because this helps build that fluency with addition to 10, to 20, and even multiplication later on! So, let's give your students lots of hands-on practice with making 10 using games!
FIrst level: Flip over two cards! If they make 10, you have a match! If they do not make ten, flip them back over and try again! The other levels are (harder) variations of the first.
Level 1 to 2Memory - Find the two cards that belongs to each other. Sometimes it's the same card and sometimes there are different cards that belong together, which depends on how this memory was created. The game is finished when all card pairs have been found and the memory has no more cards left.
Level 3Link up - At each level, you get up to 10 questions in colored boxes with or without image, video and audio. Link those boxes with the most appropriate answer among the white boxes. Each colored box can only be linked together with one white box and vice versa. If you link incorrectly, sometimes you are allowed try again until you find the correct white box. The game creator has decided how many tries you get at each level and you will notice this when you start playing a level. When you have linked all the boxes correctly, you will receive knowledge points. If you are having trouble, please click the Cancel button - then the correct answers will be displayed and you can try again.
Level 4Questions with text answers - On each level you will get up to ten questions with or without images, videos and audio files. You must type the correct answer by yourself. If you make a mistake, you get to try again until you find the searched word or phrase. Once you figure out the correct answer, you will get knowledge points. If you're having trouble figuring out the correct answer, you can click on the button labelled Give up. It will reveal the correct answer to that specific question, but you will not get any knowledge points for that round.
The game creator may have allowed you to get feedback on your typing. This is indicated by the text box you type in becoming red or green as you type. The game creator has also decided if what you are typing is case-sensitive, i.e. whether upper and lower case letters are important. Both of these settings may vary between the levels, which you'll notice when you play a level. You may be limited to typing or misspelling 0-4 times per question, after which the question is classified as incorrectly answered.
