In math, we are studying groups of 5 and some more. This helps prepare us for groups of 10. It is also easy to see groups of 5 quickly without counting. Sometimes, we need practice seeing groups of numbers. We did this through a website. We will also practice using dot cards and 10 frames. To practice, a group of dots is flashed in 3 seconds or less. It is our goal to quickly figure out how many dots were in the image. IMPORTANT - we also talk about how we see the dots. In the sample above, the left hand circle is the easiest. If it were flashed in 3 seconds or less, we could say there are 5 dots. Then we say we saw the dots in a group of three and two more. Maybe we saw a group of two, another group of two, and one more. There are many ways to see the 5 dots on the plate. The right circle is much more difficult. I see 5 green, 2 blue, and 3 red dots. Therefore, I see 10 dots. I could also see a group of two on the left, a group of three on the bottom right, a group of four towards the top, and one small one in the middle. I would still see 10 dots. Once we are able to see groups, then we are able to find groups of 5 and some more. This will help us learn our addition and subtraction facts to ten. View the pictures below to see how we've been practicing!
