This activity is such a fun way to reinforce the decomposition of the number six. Print the leaf manipulatives back to back, laminate, and cut out the boxes. One side of each piece will be a happy orange leaf, the other side will be a silly red leaf. Students will each get six pieces to put in a cup, shake, and spill. Have them count how many orange leaves and how many red leaves they have. They will then color the leaves on their recording sheet to reflect what they spilled. Then they will write the number of each. There is also a second activity included which helps reinforce early graphing skills, counting, more, less, and early adding skills. (Check out the preview).
