Shake and Spill is a great little game for providing concrete practice with composing and decomposing numbers. It can be adapted for small numbers or larger ones. Here's a tip--put the Shake and Spill mat in something enclosed (a letter tray, box lid, etc.) to prevent the "spillage" from going everywhere!
The accompanying printables extend the activity to the representational (drawing) stage.
