Offer your students hands on practice with decomposing numbers and finding addends with this interactive journal.
Each page presents a TOTAL number, 2-10, along with a corresponding set of circles.
Students will find the ADDENDS (or partners) by sliding a craft stick between the circles and dividing, or breaking the TOTAL into two parts. The quantities that lay on either side of the craft stick will represent the partners, or ADDENDS.
The number partners will then be recorded.
The pages are designed to begin with the craft stick placed on the left side of the set of circles which will mark [0 + the total]. As the stick is moved along to the right and stopped between each circle, students will find the new number quantities on either side of the stick and record accordingly.
