In a previous unit, students composed and decomposed 10 in multiple ways using their fingers and 10-frames. This lesson is optional because it is an opportunity for practice that not all students may need. This lesson provides additional practice with compositions and decompositions of 10 before students find the number that makes 10 when added to a given number. Students create a tool with 10 beads, 5 in each color, that can be used in addition to a 10-frame and fingers to show different compositions and decompositions of 10. Students may choose to use this tool throughout the section.
If students need additional support with the concepts in this lesson, refer back to Unit 5, Section C in the curriculum materials.
- Relate equations to different compositions and decompositions of 10.
- Let’s look for groups that make 10.
- Each student needs a pipe cleaner and 10 beads, 5 beads of one color and 5 beads of another color.
- Each student needs the bead tool that they created in the previous activity.
- Gather materials from:
- Shake and Spill
- Number Race
- Grab and Count
- What's Behind My Back?
- Pattern Blocks
