There are two ways to make the book. A student does 1, a studentdoes 2, a student does 3, etc. or students can use a numbergenerator such as dice or playing cards to choose their number.
If going in numerical order, have students use 2 colors of unifixcubes to make a combination of the number they were given. Forexample
If there number was 5, they may have a tower of 3 yellowcubes and 2 red ones. When using number generator, have studentsadd the 2 dice rolled or the 2 cards pulled together for the totalnumber of fish. For example
2 dots
3 dots
5 dots total
Page Example
If my number is 9, my page would look like this
Iwould write the numeral 9 in the box in the top left corner. Then Iwould write
describing word
Fish. For example
Nine shiny fishon the blanks next to the box at the top. I would use crayons,markers, stickers, or stamps to make fish that matched what Irolled or pulled or made with a tower of cubes. For example
Iwould draw 4 red fish and 5 blue fish in the open area on the page.
Write the equation on the lines at the bottom.
