This Fluency Activity is a part of the Lesson 1, Unit 1, Grade 1. Think of Fluency Practice as having three goals: 1. Maintenance (staying sharp on previously learned skills). 2. Preparation (targeted practice for the current lesson). 3. Anticipation (skills that ensure that students are ready for the in-depth work of upcoming lessons). Students must be secure in counting to 10 long before they can be expected to decompose 10.
