Wish I would've seen this when my daughter needed it. Wonder if my son would like it. Such a cute idea.
"decomposing" 1. Start kids with 2 colors of cubes ( 5 each) and indiv white boards and markers. Have them make a stick of 5 purple, 0 green. show how to write the equation. Decompose the number 5 with cubes and show ALL equations with sums of 5 with kids. 2. practice next day. 3. Day 3-give them cubes and this sheet (5) and paper squares as well.
