Math/ScienceRead Remainder of One by Elinor Pinczes.
Have students grab a small handful of centimeter cubes. Count the number of cubes. On a sheet of graph paper, have them draw the arrays and write the number sentences for the following problems:
C = number of cubes they pulled out
C÷ 2 =, C÷ 3 =, C÷ 4 =, C÷ 5 =, C÷ 6 =, C÷ 7 =,
Continue as desired. This could also be done as a homework connection. Put cubes in a snack size bag for students to take home and work with.
Pull students back to do individual interview assessments or have them do this in their math journals.
