Math:  Decomposing And Composing Numbers

We will be using our Math It Up:  Decomposing Numbers: Number bonds  resource and our Snappin’ Numbers Creation!

making 10 lesson plans

We will use red and yellow counters to make 10.  I made giant red and yellow counters from foam and I model how to make 5 or 10 in whole group.  The students then practice on their own.


We use Legos to build towers of numbers and then we break them apart to decompose numbers.  We then use two colors of Legos to build towers to compose numbers.
