Who Doesn't Love Teens?


Teaching the "teen" numbers can challenge our little ones so this is a book I created several years ago to provide practice with just these numbers and to build literacy too. On each page I ask a question using sight words they have acquired already. They build each number in the ten frame and we talk about the "extras". When we get to the teens I remind them that teenagers are bigger kids and the number word changes. Obviously this does not work for all these numbers but it is a great scaffold for our ELL's. In the _____ of the sentence frame students can just stamp the image they are using. If you do not have stamps you can use mini stickers or just color all the boxes one color to represent that number. So... enjoy those teens 'cause they can be a real handful!
