Partitioning Strategy Maths Activity

This activity is designed to help students consolidate their understanding of the partitioning strategy. Students choose a number between one and twenty at random and then create it using coloured blocks on ten frames. They use two different colours to represent the whole number. Then create a number sentence demonstrating the part, part, whole they have created in the ten frames.

Through this activity, students will show their understanding of partitioning a whole number into smaller parts.

Tips for Differentiation + Scaffolding 

A team of dedicated, experienced educators created this resource to support your maths lessons. 

If you have a mixture of above and below-level learners, check out these suggestions for keeping students on track with the concepts: 

🆘 Support Struggling Students

Give students physical counting blocks and begin with a part rather than the whole.

➕ Challenge Fast Finishers

Have students who need an extra challenge create as many different combinations of parts as they can. Ask them to record each equivalent number sentence.
