DELICIOUS DONUTS [DAY 3]

MAKING FIVE

Kindergarten lesson on decomposing numbers up to five..

Intentionality & Unit Overview

Length of Unit: 5 Days

Students will investigate how many different combinations of donuts there might be on a plate.

Intentionalityâ€¦

In this task, students will determine the different combinations of donuts that could be in the box. The intention of this task will be to build knowledge and understanding of combinations of 10.Â

Some of the big ideas that may emerge through this task include:

• There are many different ways to make 10;
• Communication of counting and grouping strategies using manipulatives, words, numbers, and picture;
• Understanding that there are different ways to combine and separate numbers to make 10

What Do You Notice? What Do You Wonder?

Show students this video:

What do you notice?

What do you wonder?

Give students 2-5 minutes to draw on their white board what they noticed and wondered..

Replaying the video can be helpful here.

Then, ask students to share with a peer (Turn and Talk) to share what they noticed (allow 1-2 minutes).Â

Some of the noticing and wondering that may come up includes:

• I see lots of donuts.
• I see sprinkle donuts.
• I see 4 in a row.
• I see so many sprinkles.
• I noticed there were different kinds of donuts.
• I wonder who the donuts are for.
• I wonder who made the donuts.
• I noticed that some donuts were chocolate and some had sprinkles.
• I noticed the donuts are the same size.

At this point, you can answer any wonders that you can cross off the list right away. For example:Â

• The donuts were made in a bakery.
• The donuts are for a birthday party.

Crafting A Productive Struggle: Prompt

Now that we know that 10 donuts can fit in the box, prompt students by stating:Â

We can fit 10 donuts into the box. We want to buy a mixture of chocolate and sprinkle donuts. How many of each donut could be in the box?
