**Number Bonds - “Make 10” (Part 2)**

In
“Make 10” (Part 1), the child has grasped the mathematical concept of number
bonds within 10. Now, we can introduce problem sums in making 10 to the child.

The
following activity is also called “Make 10” but it is the next level of number
bonding.

In
this activity, the child will be given a place mat (a A4 size scenery picture),
a task card and 10 kuti-kuti (animals). The child has to read the task card and
understand the instruction written on the task card.

For
example, the task card said “Place 5 animals in the pond. How many animals are
not in the pond?” The child will have to place the correct amount of animals
accordingly and count the amount of animals that are not in the pond.

After
counting, the child will have to fill the correct numerals in the blanks and add up the 2 numerals to find out the total number (which is 10).

Through
this activity, we can determine that the child is able to read, understand the
instruction written on the task card and act according to the instruction. This
will help the child in doing simple problem sums within 10.
