If you're working on composing and decomposing with your students here is a fun way to practice. I've made a set of dominos (made from Valentine conversation hearts!) that will help your students compose numbers to 10. This game is in ENGLISH. (For my SPANISH version go to my TPT store.)
Step 1: Students (as a small group or independently) sort ALL the dominos onto the sorting mats by counting the total hearts on the domino.
Step 2: Then, using just the dominos for the number that they are composing, the student will write all the groupings on the recording sheet. For instance, if your students are working on ways to make 5, the students will sort all the dominos, then using the “5” recording sheet, they will write: 0 & 5, 1 & 4, 2 & 3, 3 & 2, 4 & 1, and 5 & 0.
