ACCOMMODATIONS & RECOMMENDATIONS
Accommodations: In a center activity, students will use dominoes to show how to compose and decompose number for ten. The student will choose a domino from a group of dominoes and place it in the appropriate box on the recording sheet. Using crayons, the student will draw the dots on a blank domino. After drawing the dots, the student will record the equation that corresponds with dots. Then the student will turn the domino around, draw and record the corresponding equation on the recording sheet. The activity will continue with the student choosing additional dominoes, drawing and recording the corresponding equations until the recording sheet is completed.
Dots can be already provided so the student just add the equations, or have the equation and student produces the dots for the domino.
Extensions: Game - How Many Are Hiding?
Students will use ten Teddy Bear counters. Playing with a partner, one student will hide some of the counters in one hand, and the rest in the other hand. The other student will tap on one of his hands. When the partner opens his hand, the student will count the Teddy Bear counters in his hand. He then tries to figure out how many counters are in the partner's other hand. Once he guesses, the partner opens his hand and they count the counters together. The partners record the equation on a dry erase board. Then the partners change the combination around to show the matching equation and record the equation on the dry erase board. Students take turns hiding the counters and recording the corresponding equations.
Teacher Note: If students hands are not large enough to hold the teddy bear counters small cups can be used instead.Writing Extension - Students will write their own Monster Riddle and use the Monster Cutouts to illustrate their riddle.
