What is Shake and Spill Decomposing Numbers?
Shake and Spill is a popular activity to teach students the different ways they can decompose a number.
All you need are red/yellow counters (or any 2 colored 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.
There are 3 versions of the game:
1) number sentence
2) equation with the equal sign at the end (5+5 =10)
3) equation with the equal sign at the beginning (10= 5+5)
