We are learning about equivalent numbers in kindergarten to support the lessons at the end of the year in Everyday Math and the first grade lessons about number boxes. We are trying to find different ways to represent our "magic" number. This is the first time the students had participated in the activity. I did it on Educreations projecting it on to the board. It was a whole group activity. The students are able to see me write AND this group of students seem to be active participants when we are doing iPad stuff.
The next steps are for them to do this activity on the own with different numbers. I think I could use Dropbox to upload the template or they can probably make their own as well.
Here is just an insert of the whole lesson:
