Jenn developed two monster "tools" to help students compose and decompose numbers. These are difficult concepts for students, who are just learning the skills. These monsters are easily made out of everyday materials. Cereal bar boxes create the body of the monsters. Jenn gives very specific directions (pictures and words) to show you how to build these awesome monsters!

To make it even more amazing, she is providing the directions and printables for FREE!
Here are some glimpses into the composing monster. You put the counters in the two sides and they come out into the monster's mouth.
You even get a recording sheet!
