Decomposing numbers, or understanding that there are multiple ways to make each number, is a very important skill for students to learn. It is also part of the Common Core State Standards for Kindergarten (K.0A.3) and First Grade (1.OA.6). This packet provides you with tools to help your students master this skill. Students will learn through song, visuals, activities, and games.
This packet contains:
Decompose it Rap- 1 page
Ways to Make 10 Poster (comes in color, black and white, and student version)
Counter Templates 2 pages (comes in color and grayscale for easy printing)
Decompose It Four Corner Game- 32 pages- includes numbers 5-20. Students are each given an addition sentence and must find the correct corner. Can be played over and over. Great practice activity that gets kids moving! (My kiddos LOVED it.)
Decompose with a Rose Activity- 9 pages- students use the flower pattern, stem pattern, and center of flower pattern to build a flower. The number they are decomposing goes in the middle, and then they write an addition sentence on each petal. Makes a GREAT bulletin board!
Decompose with a Bug Activity- 8 pages- same idea as the one above, but might gives an option for students who may not get excited about flowers.Students get a bug pattern and a bug body. The number they are decomposing goes on the body and the addition sentences go on the legs. Also makes a GREAT bulletin board, and you could combine the two activities and give students a choice between flowers or bugs.
Buggy for Numbers Game- 9 pages- (covers numbers 5-15) great practice game, can be used as a center, small group, paired, or individual game. Students receive a game board (or boards) with 2 buggy bugs on them, they pull the game pieces and place them on the correct bug leg to complete their bugs. Lots of fun!
Garden of Numbers Game-13 pages- (covers numbers 9-20) same idea as the game above, but with flowers instead. The need to find the petals to complete their two flowers. (Again a great opportunity to provide student choice!)
Decomposing Practice Sheets- 8 practice sheets with answer keys included (total of 16 pages with answer keys)- worksheets focus on decomposing 10, 8, 15, 20, 5, and 9.
