#### Learning Objective

The students will use Cuisenaire Rods to develop number sense and deepen their understanding for the numerals 5.

### Description

Many children come to school without basic Number Sense. Here is a freebie activity to do with Cuisenaire Rods that help develop their sense of the number 5.

Why use Number Sense with Cuisenaire Rods? Cuisenaire Rods are loved by children, and they are great tools for math manipulatives. Here is a practice activity that can be used at a math center or small group instruction to help children develop stronger sense of the number 5 in a fun way.

How it works: For this activity, the children are asked to examine the yellow Cuisenaire Rods and compare it to the other blocks. Children are asked to determine if the block represents an even or an odd number, and form number sentences (equations) to combine that block with other blocks.

What’s included: There is an activity sheet the number 5. This practice sheet examines the concept of the numeral 5 by examining the attributes of the corresponding Cuisenaire Rod.

to see state-specific standards (only available in the US).
Fluently add and subtract within 20 using mental strategies. By end of Grade 2, know from memory all sums of two one-digit numbers.
Use addition and subtraction within 100 to solve one- and two-step word problems involving situations of adding to, taking from, putting together, taking apart, and comparing, with unknowns in all positions, e.g., by using drawings and equations with a symbol for the unknown number to represent the problem.
Understand subtraction as an unknown-addend problem. For example, subtract 10 – 8 by finding the number that makes 10 when added to 8.
Apply properties of operations as strategies to add and subtract. If 8 + 3 = 11 is known, then 3 + 8 = 11 is also known. (Commutative property of addition.) To add 2 + 6 + 4, the second two numbers can be added to make a ten, so 2 + 6 + 4 = 2 + 10 = 12. (Associative property of addition.)
Solve word problems that call for addition of three whole numbers whose sum is less than or equal to 20, e.g., by using objects, drawings, and equations with a symbol for the unknown number to represent the problem.
