Students use two different colors of blocks, circles, or manipulatives to fill the five frame. Their goal is to find different ways to make the number five.
Once we have practiced this skill I slip the sheet into a page protector and it instantly becomes a dry-erase board and I don't have to waste laminating. I can leave it in math centers and then store the card stock copy away until the next time I need it. The students use dry erase markers to write the number sentence that represents their display. They then record the number sentence in one of the spaces at the bottom. It includes number sentences as addend+addend=sum and sum=addend+addend to allow students to practice seeing the number sentences in any order.
