Integrate Penguins into your Math Centers and Small Group Interventions! The Penguin Plus or Minus Once Game from There's No Place like Kindergarten is a perfect compliment to your Penguin Themes! Designed to supplement Unit 4 of Investigations: Measure and Counting. A creative way to practice number composition and decomposition for your early mathematicians.
Common Core Standards Addressed:
Count to 100 by ones and by tens.
Count forward beginning from a given number within the known sequence (instead of having to begin at 1).
Write numbers from 0 to 20. Represent a number of objects with a written numeral 0-20 (with 0 representing a count of no objects).
Understand that each successive number name refers to a quantity that is one larger.
Decompose numbers less than or equal to 10 into pairs in more than one way, e.g., by using objects or drawings, and record each decomposition by a drawing or equation (e.g., 5 = 2 + 3 and 5 = 4 + 1).
Fluently add and subtract within 5.
