Teacher Name:
 Nicole Collins
Grade:
 Kindergarten
Subject:
 Math

Topic:
 Addition of 5.
Content:
 Math and adding with the number 5.
Goals:
 To help Special Education Students in K-3rd grade learn to add 5 to numbers 0-10.
Objectives:
 The students will be able to give the correct sums of 5 to numbers 0-10 on flashcards on site while playing the game Around the World to test their knowledge of the sums against each other in the form of a game. The students will also be making a set of flashcards with sums of 5 to numbers 0-10 to take home and practice with parent or adult.
Materials:
 Flashcards adding 3,4 and 5 to numbers 0-10. Packets of 11 blank flash or index cards and a pencil or marker.
Introduction:
 This is an activity that can be used with Regular Education Kindergarten and First Grade and (depending on the severity of disability)Special Education K-3rd grade.I will be building on the students prior knowledge to give correct sums of 3 and 4 to numbers 0-10 both on their own and on flashcards on sight as well as learn the correct sums of 5 to number 0-10 on sight.
Development:
 Teach the students the correct sums of 5 to numbers 0-10 and review the correct sums of 3 and 4 to numbers 1-10.
Practice:
 First the students will make their own set of flashcards with the correct sums of 5 to numbers 0-10. Then in small groups (5-10 students)the students will play Around the WOrld in a 1/2 or full circle using flashcards presenting addition problems of 5 to numbers 0-10. When students are feeling comfortable with their progress I will reintroduce addition problems of 3 and 4 to numbers 1-10 to the flash cards. They will also be able to take the flashcards that they made home to practice.
Accommodations:
 Depending on the degree of the severity of disabilities in the classroom, if getting up and playing Around the World over stimulates the students I would still have the students make their flashcards, but instead of playing Around the World, I would have then use beads, beans, small rocks etc... and have them add the items together on their desks under the flash cards.
Closure:
 Making addition a fun learning experience as well as getting them involved in the addition process. This is a good activity that can be used for Special Education and modified for students with more severe disabilites.
