Math Coach's Corner: A Mathemagician's Game for Making Ten  Have partner choose a card and keep it hidden. Using A10 lay out cards and take turns taking cards that make a 10, saying the fact as you go. At the end the child can 'guess' the card that is hidden.

Seeing Improper Fractions: ...where the numerator is larger than the denominator, like 5/3 or 289/18. Children naturally get used to thinking that a fraction is like a partially filled pie. 3/4 means we had a pie with 4 pieces but there are only 3 left. And then we spring 5/4 on them “Huh? If there are only 4 pieces in the pie to begin with, how is it possible to have 5?”
