Ten Pin Linky - Math Idea Pins

I needed something fun to think about today after someone ran into the back of my parked car & then my husband's car needed a new compressor so the air conditioner would work!
So, I was so excited to find Just Reed's fun linky.
Below are some of my favorite pins.
This is a great pin to share with parents.  I haven't decided whether to use this in a beginning of the year newsletter or as a Math Tip of the Week.  How would you share it with parents?
What a quick and easy way to include daily graphing!   
Could be used as Part Part Whole, Decomposing Numbers, or Missing Addends.
Understanding the equal sign was one of the hardest common core standards for my firsties this year.   Any cute idea with the possibility of extending their thinking is worth giving a try.
I love how this looks like a balance!
Guess who changed into Guess My Number!
This is a must for my math stations next year!
Anytime I can use something from my craft room in math makes me happy!
I saw this idea last year and tried it.
Students loved the Bears in the Cave activity.
I can't wait to make this!
My firsties will be lining up to try this!
I bought these from TPT last summer.
It was one of the easiest to set up and change out all year long.
I used small erasers for the inside pieces.
This would be perfect for developing vocabulary as discussed in Building Mathematical Comprehension.



  1. Awww.poor thing! Sorry for your terrible day! :( Thanks for linking up. I love the punching out tens!

  2. Great pins! thanks for sharing

  3. I just love the 'guess my number' and ways parents can help! :) Such a neat idea. The 'guess my number' would really be for various year levels and abilities! :)

    Thanks for sharing.
