## Activity 1: Make Your Own Dot Images (10 minutes)

### Narrative

The purpose of this activity is for students to highlight compositions and decompositions of numbers to 5. Students create a set of cards with dot images by coloring in dot arrangements and drawing their own arrangements of up to 5 dots. Students will use the cards they create in the next activity.

*Engagement: Internalize Self-Regulation.*Provide students an opportunity to self-assess and reflect on the dot cards they made. For example, they can verify that they used at least 2 different colors to color the dots.

*Supports accessibility for: Organization, Attention*

### Required Materials

### Required Preparation

- Create a set of cards from the blackline master for each student.

- 7 minutes: independent work time

### Student Response

### Activity Synthesis

- “Pick your favorite dot image. Tell your partner why it is your favorite and what parts you see inside of the total.”
- “In our next activity, you will share your dot images in a small group. What do you need to do to be a good group member and help everyone learn?”

## Activity 2: How Many Dots Do You See? (15 minutes)

### Narrative

The purpose of this activity is for students to identify more than one composition and decomposition of numbers to 5. Students use the dot image cards that they created in the previous activity to play their own version of the “How Many Do You See?” routine in small groups.

*MLR8 Discussion Supports.*Synthesis: At the appropriate time, give groups 2–3 minutes to plan what they will say when they present to the class. “Practice what you will say when you share your dot image with the class. Talk about what is important to say, and decide who will share each part.”

*Advances: Speaking, Conversing, Representing*

The first person will hold up one of their dot cards for their group members to see. The rest of the group members will have time to think. Then they will share how many dots they see and how they see them. Take turns sharing your dot images.”
