Inspiration / How I Use It
Every day in my SK/1 room, we begin our afternoon block by representing and decomposing numbers using addition sentences using the rekenrek and Base 10 apps on my iPad (projected on the SmartBoard). We've also been doing the same on the old-fashioned light projector we salvaged from an old school - using transparent Base 10 blocks.
Many of my SK/1 students are now representing, naming, adding, and decomposing 3-digit numbers consistently. (In Ontario, SKs only need to know until 10 and Grade 1s until 50!). This happened completely through inquiry
! Place value is easy-peasy for them.
I created this product as a "next step" for my students - to add accountability, have something tangible to assess (and communicate with home), practice writing answers, and to create as a math learning center opportunity.
Students can use real Base 10 manipulatives to represent the number then trace/draw it. Base 10 stamps can also be used. When applicable, students can even take a photo of their actual representations with manipulatives, print it, cut it out, and glue it onto the page.
