Today's Number: Ten Spots

What is today’s number? How many dots do you see on the ladybug?

Can you count up to 10? Can you count back down to 0? How many dots are on each wing?

Look around your home. Can you find or make sets of 5 + 5?

Here are some ideas:

  • Line up 5 toys or objects. Then line up the same amount again. Count how many you have.
  • Take 1 away from the line and count backward. Continue taking 1 away and counting backward until you have no more objects left.
  • Write one number for each item in your set.


Share the way you showed today’s number with someone. Can they think of another way to make a set of 10?
