Learners will compose a number sentence by spinning the spinner. The matching number card of the 1st spin, will be placed on the 1st gray space on the 1st line. The matching number card of the 2nd spin will be placed on the 2nd gray space on the same line. Children will add the 2 numbers together, placing the total number card on the last spot to solve the problem.

On the second line, students will replicate the equation using a small manipulative (build sets to match the numbers). Alternatively, the number sentence can be copied/written with a dry erase marker if laminated or placed in a sheet protector.
