A problem-solving approach for decomposing numbers! These multi-answer word problems encourage students to think about number combinations in real-world contexts. Students can model the problems with two-coloured counters or unifix cubes and record their answers.
I use these in my K/1 classroom both to help build strong number sense, and to reinforce knowledge of addition facts.
5 problems included, 1 each for decomposing numbers 5 - 9.
