Reflection: Diverse Entry Points How Many Dots? - Section 3: Station TIme


I have students who are at different levels of understanding for both of these activities.  I have included resources that will allow you to differentiate for each activity.

Drop Sticks:

There is an Add Drop Sticks sheet in the section resource.  This sheet will students to have the +10 already included in the equation and will eliminate the need for the spinner.  I would give this group an extra ten stick (in a special color) to add to the pile (as a way to represent adding an extra ten each time).  This way they can easily distinguish the extra ten being added.

There is also a Subtract Drop Sticks sheet that students can use to practice just on subtraction.  Again this will eliminate the need for the spinner.


Building Numbers:

 There are three different sheets for differentiating this activity at different levels.  There is a for taking a ten from a number.  

  There are also blank sheets for addition and subtraction that will allow you to differentiate the starting number and the amount +/- for each student.
