A coloring page that is coded in 3 different ways:
1. subtilizing quantities 3-8 with finger patterns, tallies, and ten frames
2. Missing addend equations by fact strategy type
3. Missing factor equations by fact strategy type
For the little ones, recognizing these basic quantities and connecting them to the number symbols is crucial to basic number sense.
With the equation strategy types, there isn't necessarily ONE RIGHT ANSWER, as children can construct their own argument and critique the reasoning of their peers. Engage your students in a thoughtful conversation about fact fluency without adding the stress of a timer!
