Gobble! Gobble! The Decomposing Turkey is perfect for November in any primary classroom! Use his bright, colorful feathers to compose or decompose numbers. You can record the whole number on his belly and the parts on his wings. I use him as part of my morning number routine, but he is also perfect for small group instruction and centers.
This set also includes 27 printables to practice decomposing numbers, addition, subtraction, and fact families through 10. There are pages with given whole numbers and blank pages for students to build their own numbers. I like to slide these printables into a dry erase sleeve so little ones can build numbers again and again at math centers.
You will also receive a black and white version of the turkey and feathers. Your learners can decorate their own feathers and build numbers at school or at home. This interactive activity is a perfect way to add some Thanksgiving fun to your math plans!
