Sometimes it helps children to review what they do know and what they do not know from a Headline Story. In this problem, they do know there are 10 steps in Roberto’s dance, and that the last step is to spin around. They do not know how many times to clap or stomp. You might wish to have children act out the steps in their responses.
Roberto learned a new dance with 10 steps. He explained the dance by saying that first you clap your hands_____ times, next you stomp your right foot _____ times, and last you spin around one time.
