# Fruitful Figures Fiesta

## Worksheet Description

This worksheet is an interactive activity designed to help children practice counting and basic addition by making sums that total ten. Each box contains two sets of images, one with apples and the other with bananas, and children are instructed to count each set. After counting, they must determine how many more pieces of fruit are needed to reach a total of ten and write that number in the provided blank space. The worksheet uses familiar fruit imagery to make the math concepts more accessible and enjoyable for the students.

“Fruitful Figures Fiesta” is tailored to teach students the foundational math concept of making ten. It encourages children to use counting as a means to solve simple addition problems, thereby enhancing their numerical literacy. This worksheet also introduces the idea of ‘number bonds’, which are pairs of numbers that add up to a given number, in this case, ten. The visual representation of the problems helps children understand that numbers can be composed of smaller numbers, a key concept in developing mathematical fluency.
