Teacher Name: | Ms. Ritzer |
Grade: | Grade 1 |
Subject: | Math |
Topic: | Math: Addition with Circle Drawings *Represent and solve addition story problems with circle drawings *Key Terms: more, add, partner, circle drawing, and total |
Content: | 5.03 Model, write, and evaluate simple number sentences (equations) to develop an understanding of equality. 5.04 Determine and justify the value of the unknown in simple number sentences using models and symbols. |
Goals: | The purpose of this lesson is for the students to gain a better awareness on solving and representing addition story problems with circle drawings. |
Objectives: | Learners will demonstrate their ability to read, solve, and represent addition story problems by using the circle drawing technique. |
Materials: | Pencils Overhead Projector Transparent counters |
Introduction: | The purpose of this lesson is for the students to gain a better awareness on solving and representing addition story problems with circle drawings. |
Development: | Before turning my class loose to do the work I will first model to the task. As whole class instruction, I will present a word problems to the class. During this I will have my students draw a picture to solve the word problem for about one minutes. ****Student Practice before the second part of modeling**** Once my students do the guided practice (see below) I will present the same problem again. This time I will use my overhead projector and draw my simple circles. I will be modeling to my students how the circles can be used to represent the castles. *I draw four circles for the king, then just make a vertical line and draw two more circles for the queens castles. I write down the numbers above each group of circles to make a number sentence. |
Practice: | Word Problem: * The Kind has 4 castles. * The Queen has 2 castles. * How many castles do they have altogether? Once they are done, I will then talk about ways to represent the problem using pictures. I will help my students see that it is not needed to draw every castle. I will offer the chance for my students to suggest ways that will make it easier to represent the castles. I will point out that just by drawing with simple shapes, such as circles will save time. *****This part corresponds with the second part of my development******* After I draw my example on the overhead, my students will make their own at their desk. Students records the number sentences above their circles. |
Accommodations: | For those students that are having difficulties, I will use counting chips as a representation of the castles. For those students who need to be challenged, I will present the word problem to them and they will have to read and hunt for the number words to solve the problem. |
Checking For Understanding: | When looking at their workbook pages and whole class work, I will see if they are: does their number sentence match the number of circles in their drawings? Did they write the total number of circles? |
Closure: | This activity will continue on into centers around the classroom. However, we will talk about how it is easy to show our work when working with math word problems. |
Teacher Reflections: | This will be extended into a various center based activities. The students work will help me see who needs more support and those who need to be challenged. |
