We are learning how to write and construct numbers 11-15.  We used connecting cubes and a five-frame to compose and decompose these numbers.  Each student was given a train of 10 cubes and then added the number of cubes needed to make a given number.  The students learned that they did not need to count the train of 10, that they could count on from 10.
