Also available in a BUNDLE:


This resource was designed to help students learn to compose and decompose the number five. The activities can be used in a teacher-led small group or in an independent math center. You could also use the mats as a morning tub activity or for fast finishers.

To help keep this activity fresh and new for students, there are five themes included. You might decide to use one theme in a teacher led station to show students how to complete the task, and use the other themes for independent work.

Each theme comes with activity mats (three options), β€œI Can” visual directions, three recording sheet options, activity mats, and counters. Open-ended activity mats for each theme are included to allow you to differentiate for students. You can use the shapes included or items you have on hand, such as: plastic math cubes, mini erasers, etc.

Themes Include:
-Candy Shop
-Cookies and Milk
-My Pet Dog
-Smart Thinkers / Students
