The first time I moved from first to second grade with my students I was feeling great about the class's math skills. We had passed the district's grade level tests with flying colors. I was shocked the next year when my students struggled with some math concepts. After careful reflection I realized to be truly successful my students needed a greater depth of understanding so when challenges arose, they had a larger toolbox to rely on. One key way I remedied this was having students fluently know how to break down numbers or decompose numbers. This simple step opened the door for my students to master a variety of different ways to solve math problems and excel in math. If you are a primary teacher or have a child in Pre-K, kindergarten or first grade, these concepts are critical to upper-grade success. Plus this hands-on game makes it easy for all learners to be successful. Buy today and let the learning begin!
Independent learners will enjoy gaining fluency and understanding of basic addition and how to make a number through Decomposing Numbers. Students place clip art in the boxes to make an equation (pictured above). Then they write the number sentence on the line. This is a great learning tool for students who finish their tasks early, students who need extra practice in math fluency or home schoolers who are looking for a creative approach to learning.
