After the iReady diagnostics your students are given a placement in each domain. If you click on a student’s name and then the domain (NBT, OA, MD, G) you will get information to show you what they can do and their next steps for instruction. Use this document to guide you in your instruction for the NBT and OA domains.

Flipcharts found on this site:
These flipcharts contain sample questions.
They do not always go in order.
PLEASE DO NOT GO PAGE BY PAGE (slide one is not day one, etc.).
As you consider using the flipchart:
1. Think about the learning intention and success criteria you plan to use for this slide and the questions you will use to elicit understanding.
2. Write/Post/Say the learning intention and success criteria so the students understand the expectation, self-monitor, and self-assess their personal level of understanding.
3. Then, select appropriate experiences to meet your students’ needs. Depending on your learning intention and success criteria, you may need to do another similar problem, or more similar problems, to build their understanding. Having more than one problem helps you to meet all students’ needs and be able to easily differentiate (remediating/extending).
How to use:
- Count while watching. What do you notice? What do you wonder?
- Eventually, students will notice that the pattern in the ones place is 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 0, 1, 2, 3… and the pattern in the tens place is similar: 1 ten, 1 ten, 1 ten….2 tens, 2 tens, 2 tens… etc. They will be able to describe why a number is written the way it is and what it represents: 27 is 2 groups of ten (seen as the blue bars) and 7 ones (seen as red dots). 2 tens is 20, and 7 ones is 7, so 20+7=27. They will make a connection to addition/subtraction: counting up is like adding 1 each time, counting down is like subtracting 1 each time.
Numbers to 10:
Use the Suggested Number Talks document. The following flipcharts have NOD and POD.
How to use the above video:
- Watch and ask: What do you notice? What do you wonder?
- Ask: What is addition? What is subtraction? How are they the same? How are they different?
