A cut and paste worksheet to practice finding the missing addend when making ten.
Use this worksheet when practicing how to make ten by combining the numbers 0–10.
How to Use This Worksheet
Students will cut out the numbers and glue them in the box next to where they belong. This resource can be used as an independent practice after a lesson or as a math center activity. It also works well as a whole-class activity. Simply project the first page onto your screen and work each problem together as a class.
How to Support Your Students in the Classroom
For those students needing a bit more support, give them a set of connecting cubes in two different colors. Using one color, students will create a stick of cubes matching the given number in the addition problem, e.g., in the problem 8 + ____ = 10, the students will make a stick of 8. Then, using the second color, they will continue to count on, placing cubes onto their stick until they reach 10, e.g., they will add 2 cubes to their stick of 8. Afterward, they count the number of cubes they added in the second color to determine the missing addend.

Common Core Curriculum alignment
Add and subtract within 20, demonstrating fluency for addition and subtraction within 10. Use strategies such as counting on; making ten (e.g., 8 + 6 = 8 + 2 + 4 = 10 + 4 = 14); decomposing a number leading to a ten (e.g., 13 - 4 = 13 - 3 - 1 = 10 - ...
Fluently add and subtract within 20 using mental strategies. By end of Grade 2, know from memory all sums of two one-digit numbers.
For any number from 1 to 9, find the number that makes 10 when added to the given number, e.g., by using objects or drawings, and record the answer with a drawing or equation.
