Digital Activities for Composing and Decomposing Teen Numbers

January 04, 2021

Composing and Decomposing teen numbers into tens and ones is one of my favorite skills to teach.  This year, I created some digital activities for students to practice this skill.  These digital activities are compatible with Seesaw, Google Slides, and Powerpoint.


This product contains 5 digital activities for practicing Composing and Decomposing Teen Numbers into Groups of Tens and Ones. The five activities provide students with the opportunity to practice composing and decomposing teen numbers using number bonds, identifying teen numbers using base ten blocks, writing how many tens and ones make a teen number, word problems involving teen numbers, composing teen numbers using ten frames, and writing fact families involving teen numbers.  All 5 activities are provided for Seesaw, Google Slides, and PowerPoint. Video directions are also included with step-by-step instructions on how to access the files. Written student directions are also included with each activity.

Each activity contains 10 slides.

The Activities

1. Chasing Rainbows to Teen Numbers - In this activity, students are given a number bond with only the parts. Students must type/write in the missing whole, and then, type/write the fact family that matches the number bond.



2. It's Raining Teen Numbers - In this activity, students practice composing and decomposing teen numbers with number bonds. Students must complete number bonds involving missing parts and missing wholes. Students will type/write in the answers.


3. Take a Shine to Teen Numbers - This activity gives students the opportunity to practice identifying teen numbers using base ten blocks. After identifying the number, students will type/write how many tens and ones are in the teen number.



4. Tearing Up Teen Numbers - In this activity, students will move digital pieces to complete ten frames to match a given teen number. Students will then type/write how many tens and ones are in the teen number.



5. Teen Number Word Problems - This activity provides students with the opportunity to practice solving word problems involving teen numbers. Students are provided with a workspace to solve each problem. Students will finish the activity by typing/writing in their answer to each word problem.

Seasonal Non-Fiction Reading Passages with Comprehension Checks

October 19, 2020

I have created many units and freebies, most of which include non-fiction reading passages.  Over the years, one of the most frequently asked questions I have received is about the non-fiction reading passages.  Many teachers have wondered if I have more of these or an entire packet of non-fiction passages.  Well, I'm so happy to finally be able to say, "Yes!" I now have a collection of Seasonal Non-Fiction Reading Passages and each passage comes with a comprehension check.


What's Included?

This Seasonal Non-Fiction Reading Passages with Comprehension Checks packet contains 109 high-interest informational texts on seasonal, science, and historical topics! Passages include fall, winter, spring, and summer topics. The included comprehension checks give students the opportunity to practice responding to the text using multiple choice, text evidence (using crayons to highlight evidence in the text), flow charts, bubble maps, and written responses. Each topic contains a full one-page text and an accompanying full one-page comprehension check. Answer keys are also included.


Google Classroom Integration
Included are both print and digital versions. All texts and comprehension checks are also available as Google Slides. Students are able to read and respond to the texts digitally. Comprehension checks allow students to digitally answer multiple choice, text evidence, flow chart, bubble map, and written response questions. The digital version would be perfect for digital integration in the classroom or Distance/Remote Learning. Answer keys are included in only the PDF version, so students will not have access to the answers digitally.


Skills Covered

The comprehension checks cover skills including: author's purpose, main idea and key details, determining the meaning of words, text features, how specific images contribute to the text, describing how reasons support points the author makes in a text, describing connections between paragraphs in a text, using information from included illustrations to demonstrate an understanding of the text, and asking and answering questions such as who, what, where, when, why, and how to demonstrate an understanding of key details in a text.

These passages would be great to use for reading informational texts, practicing comprehension skills, fluency, assessing students' comprehension skills, test prep, small group instruction, RTI, literacy stations, independent reading, partner reading, and homework. Texts are written with Second and Third Graders in mind, which also makes them good for stretch texts for high-level First Graders or support material for below-level Fourth Graders.

Common Core Objectives covered in this unit are: RI.2.1, RI.2.2, RI.2.4, RI.2.5, RI.2.7, RI.2.8, RI.2.10, RI.3.1, RI.3.2, RI.3.3, RI.3.4, RI.3.7, RI.3.8, and RI.3.10
