Product Description
This is a super fun and engaging way for your kiddos to practice decomposing numbers to 10. This set includes 4 colored snowman mats, 4 black and white snowman mats, and 3 different kinds of recording sheets. One recording sheet There are two ways to play this game. If you want your kiddos to compose and decompose the number 10, you could cover the #6 on dice. You will give each kiddo a mat, a recording sheet, 2 dice, and 10 buttons. Students will roll the dice and then put the number of buttons on each section of the snowman’s body that appears on each die. Then they will transfer that decomposition to their recording sheets by writing a number sentence, filling in a number bond, or both, depending upon the recording sheet that you choose to use.

If you would like to have your kiddos decompose numbers other than 10, or if you just don’t want to use dice when decomposing 10, just give your students the amount of buttons that you would like them to decompose. Rather than using dice, just have them put some of their buttons on one snowball, on the snowman’s body, and some on the other and then fill in their recording sheet. Have them repeat this until they have recorded several decompositions of that number.
