Decomposing 10 Freebie!

Happy Monday!  It's holiday time so let's share some freebies!

I am always looking for different ways to support my students' understanding of 10.  Being able to decmpose and compose 10 is necessary component when developing number sense.  But let's be careful, we want our kiddos to be flexible with their numbers and be able to use what they know when they start working with 2  and 3-digit numbers.  After all, it's all about 10 so we don't want them to simply memorize these facts.  To that end, I try to review these facts and incorporate games as often as possible.    Many of my resources use 10-frames and rekenreks but I couldn't resist using this adorable cookie clipart by Krista Wallden at Creative Clips.  I love all her work and they were part of her Unwrap Freebies.  Thank you, Krista! 

Ok...back to the game.  Kids shake and spill - I had my students use red and green chips (sprinkles) and gently spill them on the cookie.  They counted how many landed on the the cookie and figured out how many are off the cookie.  Hopefully they can remember their combinations, if not, the chips are there to count and check!  Students then wrote the combinations on a recording sheet.  It is cute and fun for the kids while supportive and helpful for their understanding!
Grab your free copy here from Google Drive!

Glad to be linking up with Charity for the Manic Monday linky.  What freebies do you have to share this week?  

Happy holidays!
