In this book, the author shows many examples of 11. She creates very bright and colorful scenarios in many different settings. The kiddos love seeing all the ways to get to 11. Here is an example:
If you are working on number representation or addition this would be a perfect book for your kiddos!
One activity we have done following this book is to have a hula hoop out and allow groups of students to show how to make 11. We give them different colored unifix cubes and they put them together in many ways to make 11. We tell them they can use multiple color combinations so they don't all only add 2 numbers to get to 11. In this picture there are many ideas represented;
9+2, 8+3, 10+1, 5+5+1, etc.
Another activity you can do after reading is make a class book where each student makes their own example of 11. If you'd like to try that out, click on the picture below for a FREEBIE!!!
