Reflection: Flexibility Seven Apples and Bananas - Section 1: Warm Up


After introducing the ten frame activity, I quickly realized that the class (as a whole) was quite secure with identifying the number of dots flashed.  This is a result of having a "kick-ass" kindergarten teacher and the Quick Flash images that we have been doing.  So, I decided to introduce the next concept that I would be doing with these ten frames.  Take a look at the video resource entitled How Many More To Ten?.  I basically want to start building a visual for compliments of 10.  This ten frame activity allows for that to occur.

Big Idea: Possibilities are abound as students try to determine one of the possible solutions to a story problem. Although they won't be eating Apples and Bananas, Raffi would still be proud.
