 I will write the following word problem on the board: At the pet store there were two aquariums. Each aquarium had six fish it. How many fish were in the two aqauriums?
 I will then ask the students questions about the problem. 1.)How many aquariums are there? The children will answer two. I will then draw two aquariums on the board. 2.)How many fish are in each aquarium? The children will answer six. I will then draw six fish in each aquarium. 3.)How many fish are there all together? The children will count the fish on the board. I will give them a couple minutes and then I will call on someone.
 -We will do one more problem together and then I will let the children work independently. -I will write another problem on the board for the students to work on by themselves. -The students may use the unifix cubes or base-ten unit blocks if they wish. -The students can also use the white boards or paper if they wish to draw it.
