How do I explain "make a 10" to my 2nd grade son for his math homework?

asked by Patty
  1. He could count his 10 fingers.

    He could count out 10 Cheerios or M&Ms.

    He could count his toes on one foot and add it to the number of toes on the other foot.

    He could add:
    5 + 5
    6 + 4
    7 + 3
    8 + 2
    9 + 1
