Reflection: Unit Planning Ways to Make 6- A Lesson on Decomposing - Section 2: Presentation of Lesson


I planned this unit with the intention of having these lessons very repetitive.  In the past, I have found decomposing numbers to be a difficult concept for my students.  I hoped that the repetitive lessons and giving each number its own day would give the students time to understand and practice the concept.  After the first 5 lessons, I have found the students to be getting a little bored.  I found a book for decomposing the number 7 and am going to incorporate it into tomorrow's lesson to change it up while still keeping a similar routine.

Big Idea: Kindergarteners are very concrete thinkers. Therefore, if 2 + 3 = 5, then nothing else can equal 5, or at least that's what they initially think. " Same As" develops a new understanding that there can be several combinations to make 5.
