Title: Virtual Hundred Chart Patterns: 10 more, 10 less, 1 more, 1 less
Description:

This activity is for a virtual hundreds chart puzzle game.  Students can use the puzzle to explore number patterns within 100, finding 10 more, 10 less, 1 more, and 1 less of a given number. This activity will be best used after students are familiar with a hundreds chart.

This activity was created as a result of the DLCS COS Resource Development Summit.

8 ) Represent addition and subtraction with objects, fingers, mental images, drawings, sounds (e.g., claps), acting out situations, verbal explanations, expressions, or equations. (Drawings need not show details, but should show the mathematics in the problem. This applies wherever drawings are mentioned in the Standards.) [K-OA1]

[MA2015] (0) 10 :
10 ) Decompose numbers less than or equal to 10 into pairs in more than one way, e.g., by using objects or drawings, and record each decomposition by a drawing or equation (e.g., 5 = 2 + 3 and 5 = 4 + 1). [K-OA3]

[MA2015] (1) 6 :
6 ) Add and subtract within 20, demonstrating fluency for addition and subtraction within 10. Use strategies such as counting on; making ten (e.g., 8 + 6 = 8 + 2 + 4 = 10 + 4 = 14); decomposing a number leading to a ten (e.g., 13 - 4 = 13 - 3 - 1 = 10 - 1 = 9); using the relationship between addition and subtraction (e.g., knowing that 8 + 4 = 12, one knows 12 - 8 = 4); and creating equivalent but easier or known sums (e.g., adding 6 + 7 by creating the known equivalent 6 + 6 + 1 = 12 + 1 = 13). [1-OA6]

[DLIT] (0) 12 :
6) Recognize ways in which computing devices make certain tasks easier.

Examples: Communication, doctor's visits/medical records, maps and directions.

[DLIT] (1) 16 :
10) Identify an appropriate tool to complete a task when given guidance and support.

Title: Model It Up in Google Sheets
URL: https://docs.google.com/document/d/1Bul_XP7GVsJEBJ9WzcGwIXkxRdqEgRS3ajQwyRDn9_Y/edit
Description:

In this learning experience designed for littles (grades Pre-K through 2nd), Christine Pinto, Kindergarten teacher and co-author of Google Apps for Littles,  uses Google Sheets templates to help her students learn basic addition and give them early exposure to equations. Students can "make five", "make ten", "make twenty", following the colors in the Google Sheets cells.

The kids make their models by using single digit numbers according to the color key to color the cells. First, they fill in the blank cells with a color by typing the number that corresponds to the color. For example, they could fill three boxes with green, two with orange. Then they add their equation to the yellow box to show how it makes 5 (3 (green) plus 2 (orange) equals five). Then they check their answer in the blue box following the example.
