This activity is such a fun way to reinforce the decomposition of the number five. Print the owl manipulatives back to back, laminate, and cut out the boxes. One side of each piece will be a purple owl, the other side will be a green owl. Students will each get five pieces to put in a cup, shake, and spill. Have them count how many purple owls and how many green owls they have. They will then color the owls on their recording sheet to represent what they see and write the numbers.
Included are owl manipulatives as well as a worksheet/recording sheet.
