Here are some photos of them partitioning to make a tidy 10.
If your child is in this group please ask them to explain to you how they do it.
Enjoy the photos:
|Krue went to the lolly shop and brought....|
|7 green gummy bears and 6 orange gummy bears...now...how to solve this problem with partitioning?|
|Why of course! 7 add 3 more makes ten, then you add the three left over. Ta dah! That's partitioning to 10 by splitting our second number up into parts.|
|Persia went to the dairy and brought 8 orange gummy bears and 5 green gummy bears...now to get partitioning!|
|Yup, you guessed it! These whizz kids knew to add 2 to 8 which makes ten then add the rest on.|
|Cooper went to the dairy and brought 7 green gummy bears and 4 orange gummy bears...|
|That's easy Mrs C! 7 add 3 makes 10 with one left over = 11!|
|Can you work out what the word problem would be for this photo?|
|Were you right?|
