Procedure 
1.
Read the story, Counting in the Garden with students. Use
the butterfly net to help students count each item throughout the story. 2. Use the
SMART notebook pages from "Garden Math" to introduce and practice
decomposing numbers. 3. Have
students choose two of their favorite numbers to decompose. They will
choose colors for their flowers (petals, middle, stem). 4. Students
will decompose the number and write them on the petals for the flower
(one per petal). Students will write each of their chosen numbers on the circle
that will be the center of their flowers. 5. I will ask
if any of the students would like to share the ways they decomposed
their numbers as well as their beautiful flowers.
