I LOVE this book. It was fun for the students to figure out the different ways to make a number. I put the book under the document camera and we solved the first few pages together and then each student got a paper with the picture on it. The students had circle them on their own, write the math sentence and then share their ideas. It's great practice without the worksheet but I wanted the students to create the math equations.

Here is the Picasso page. The students had to come up with six ways to make ten.

Here are some of Greg Tangs other books that are perfect for first grade!
