Five and Some More

     What I love about teaching is that there are always opportunities for learning something new.  In our math program, numbers 6-10 are taught as 6 is 5 and 1 more, 7 is 5 and 2 more, and so on up to 10.  For me, this was a new way of teaching these numbers and I could easily see the benefits in working with this base of 5 to teach subitizing, counting on, and addition. Here are some of the tools I used to teach the numbers 6-10 as 5 and some more.

felt board pieces in a ten-frame configuration

counting hands (or trees) with a color change after five
counting hand math mats
counting paths using manipulatives and white boards
 a rekenrek
a counting book 

How have you worked with “five and some more?”
