Number Stories and Number Sentences
This lesson focuses on understanding and creating number sentences and number stories. The students have already been introduced to these topics; however, they will explore them further during this lesson. The students will read the number story, find the important information to create the appropriate number sentence (with operational symbols) and then draw a picture to illustrate the number sentence. They practice this as a large group, with a partner and then independently. The culminating project will allow the students to create a number story of their own and then publish it on Tux Paint. The teacher will then put all the projects together for a class slideshow in PowerPoint.
