The file has three sections starting with a story problem that asks students to count how many dog bones are on a train. Teachers can use these pages to develop student understanding of the problem. The last two pages of this section highlight two strategies of solving the problem: 1) adding all the bones together, and 2) adding the 10’s and then adding the 1’s.
The next section takes students through three scenarios of counting by 10’s and 1’s. Finally, the Build It” section provides a more challenging and engaging way to model and interact with blocks of 10 by having students add the correct number of train cars (blocks of 10) to the Pugsley Express.
