My class loves composing and decomposing numbers. They feel like math rock stars! I am so proud of their hard work and thinking about number. The Common Core asks children to think more about the quantities rather than just memorize how to count and write numbers. Visualizing quantities is important for mathematical understanding.
We began this work early in the year during calendar as we talked about the date and its value. Next, we moved to learning our teen numbers using a Number Train. We are now composing and decomposing our teens.
I must admit, it has been much easier to teach because of the many fabulous teacher created resources from bloggers like you. You have made teaching this skill easier and time saving.
Here are some of my favorite resources to teach Teen Numbers.
Leslie from Kindergarten Works has many resources (similar to the one above) that help teach teen numbers.
I like this, this and this from Maria at Kinder - Craze. She has really inexpensive resources that I use all the time in my room.
Finally, here is a quick Ten Plus Some More Exit Slip that I plan to use with my students. There are three different sheets so that I can distribute them at random as a quick progress monitoring assessment.
Learning the teen numbers can be fun!
