Shake and Spill
Shake and Spill is a popular activity to teach students the different ways they can make a number.
All you need are counters and a cup and this recording sheet and you are all set to go!
Students shake a set number of counters in the cut and spill them. Students write and color each combination after they "spill" it.
These recording sheets can be used to show the different ways you can add the numbers 5, 6, 7, 8, 9 and 10. Students can play this game individually or with a partner. Students then write a number sentence and practice reading their number sentence to a friend (i.e., 6 and 4 make 10).
Differentiate your instruction!!!
Give struggling students lower numbers like 5 and 6 and give higher students numbers like 9 and 10
