Lesson Plan

 Standards K.OA3- Decompose numbers less than or equal to 10 into pairs in more than one way. Grade-Level Indicator Students will be able to decompose two numbers, less than or equal to ten, using a flower and petal model.

S- State Learning Objectives in ABCD Format

 Learning Objectives The kindergarten students will be able to decompose two of their favorite numbers using flower templates and colored construction paper. The students will be able to write each way to decompose the number on a petal which will be glued onto their flower.

S- Select Materials

 Materials Counting in the Garden by Kim Parker Bright colored construction paper Pencils Glue Scissors Butterfly net

U-Utilize Materials

 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.

R- Require Student Interaction

 Grouping Students will be working independently Student Involvement Interaction with smart board Interaction with concrete materials Strategies Used to Address Objectives Used SMART Notebook to address decomposing numbers (very visual) and can be used as a follow up activity.
