# Lesson 7

Create Number Books (Part 2)

## Warm-up: How Many Do You See: Different Dots (10 minutes)

### Narrative

The purpose of this How Many Do You See is for students to subitize or use grouping strategies to describe the images they see.

### Launch

• Groups of 2
• “How many do you see? How do you see them?”
• Flash the image.
• 30 seconds: quiet think time

### Activity

• Display the image.
• 1 minute: partner discussion
• Record responses.
• Repeat for each image.

### Student Facing

How many do you see?
How do you see them?

### Activity Synthesis

• “Let’s write an expression or equation for each group of dots.”
• Record expressions and equations that students share.
• “The same group of 5 dots can look different depending on how you arrange the dots. When you are working on your number book today, you can think about different ways to show how many objects there are.”

## Activity 1: Make Number Books (30 minutes)

### Narrative

The purpose of this activity is for students to create a number book about their school community. Students share their work with a partner, receive feedback, and then improve their work (MP3). In the activity synthesis, students will create a title and front cover for their book. As students work during the activity, have them leave the first page blank. If time allows, invite students to make a rough draft and then a final draft of their book.

MLR8 Discussion Supports. Create a visual display of a page with a number, a picture, and some words or a sentence. Reference the display during the directions, pointing to each component.
Engagement: Internalize Self-Regulation. Provide students an opportunity to self-assess and reflect on their pages. For example, students should verify that each page has a number, a picture, and some words or a sentence.
Supports accessibility for: Memory, Organization
