Here, Kysen is showing how he can decompose numbers less than 5 in more than one way. Simply put five double sided chips in a cup shake them up and pour them out! Then arrange the 5 chips in a row. His challenge was to make every row look different.
Materials (aff link):
Double sided chips
Here is a video of Kysen doing the activity.
First put 5 double sided chips in a cup. Then shake them up and pour them out!
Next have them put the 5 chips in a line. Then have them read the line to you. For example 4 red and 1 yellow equal 5.
The challenge is to make 5 different rows of 5 (so no row should look the same).
A number bond (sometimes alternatively called an addition fact) is a simple addition sum which has become so familiar that a child can recognize it and complete it almost instantly, with recall as automatic as that of an entry from a multiplication table in multiplication.Join our mailing list for access to our FREE printables and activities for kids sent right to your inbox!
