I just wanted to let you know for future customers that the domino set included with the manipulatives doesn't have enough dominoes to do this activity. There is only one of each domino (i.e. there is one 1 + 9 domino, but there is not another to be the 9 + 1). In total, the activity calls for 10 dominoes that add up to 10, but there are only five dominoes that add up to 10. I did the activity with one set the best that I could, but it would have been better to have two sets of dominoes. Hope this makes sense!

Maureen, Thanks for catching this. The author rewrote the domino instructions to the following:

"Give your child a set of double-nine dominoes, and ask her to find those that have two sides that add up to 10. Once she finds all of them (she should find five), ask her to line them up so that they go in order from the domino that has 1 spot on the top end and 9 on the bottom end to the domino that has 5 spots on both ends."

We are also having one of our artists revise the image so that it shows only the first five dominos.
All the best, Karen Brown, Director of Curriculum

Okay thanks! I obviously am a "look at the drawing, not the directions" sort of person! :-)
