Transcript The Number 10

Let's make room for "The Number Ten." "What's the number ten anyway?" Today we will learn about the number ten. When someone says there are ten things, they are talking about the number of objects. "Like the ten legs on my crab?" "Or our ten bowling pins?" That's right, Skylar and Henry. Those are great examples of the number ten. Can you see any other examples of the number ten in Henry and Skylar's room? The number ten on the ten dollar bill! Is there another example of the number ten? There are ten fingers on the gloves! What does the number ten look like? Skylar and Henry both have the number ten on their shirts! The number ten looks a little like a stick of butter and a loaf of bread. How do you write the number ten? To write the number ten, we make the number one first by starting at the very top line and pulling all the way down to the bottom line, then we make the zero next to it by starting at the very top line again and scooping down to the bottom line then scooping up to the same spot at the top! Let's practice drawing the number ten! Put your finger in the air and trace it with us! Now that is a great looking ten, thanks for helping! Can you help us launch the rocket? Let's count down from ten: ready, go. ten, nine, eight, seven, six, five, four, three, two, one, blast off! Today we learned all about the number ten.

The Number 10 exercise

  • Which is number ten?


    Remember, ten is made up of two digits.

    Can you find ten on this number line? What does it look like?


    This is the number 10!

    We write a 1 first, then a 0 to make 10.

  • Can you find all of the examples of ten?


    Look for places where 10 is written, as well as groups of 10.

    Count groups of objects carefully, making sure there are ten like these 10 bees.


    Here we can see the examples of 10 highlighted in yellow. They are:

    • Skylar and Henry's t-shirts that have 10 and ten written on them.
    • The handprint picture that shows 10 fingers.
    • The vase with 10 flowers in it.
    • The calendar showing 10.
    • The clock showing 10:10.
    • The 10 building blocks on the shelves.
    There are 8 crayons and 9 toy cars.

  • Which ones show 10?


    Count the objects carefully to make sure there are 10.

    Use this image to help you.


    Here we can see all of the images that show 10.

  • Can you launch the rocket?


    Look at the numbers already filled in. Which numbers come before or after them?

    Look at this number line counting forwards. Can you use it to help you complete the number line counting backwards?


    The correct order when counting backwards from 10 is:

    10, 9, 8, 7, 6, 5, 4, 3, 2, 1, 0! Blast off!

  • Making pairs.


    Count the spots carefully to find out how many there are. For example, here we would count 1...2...3!

    Here is a number line to 10 to remind you of the numbers in the correct order.


    Here we can see the spots matched to the correct numbers.

  • Can you assign the pictures correctly?


    Which sound does each of the number words start with? Look for that to match the words to the numbers.

    Carefully count the pictures to find the total. For example, if we were counting these spots we would count them: 1...2...3...4...5...6...7!


    Here we can see the correct answers.
