Lesson Plan : Solving Single Digit Addition

Teacher Name:
 Mrs. Loveless-Delfs
 Grade 1

 Adding two single digit numbers.
 Math, Addition, Sum or Equals, Plus
 The student will be able to solve single digit addition equations quickly and accurately.
 The student will be able to solve an equation that contains two single digit numbers. The student will recognize the symbol for addition. The student will successfully set up the equation and put the numbers in the correct sequence.
 The instructor will use the blackboard/dry erase board to begin the lesson. The students will be provided with a worksheet with ten addition problems as well as sets of tens blocks. The will be allowed to use a numberline.
 Teacher will introduce the lesson by calling two students to the front of the room. One student will write one number (1-9) and the other student will write another number (1-9) on the board.
 The teacher will place an addition and equals sign on the board and then introduce the lesson topic. The teacher will then briefly re-teach how numbers represent quantities. The tens blocks will then be used to represent the numbers in the equations. The teacher will then complete several equations using both the tens blocks and the numberline.
 The teacher will then place several equations on the board and allow students the opportunity to help solve them. The teacher will use the mum ball (when the teacher or another student throws the mum ball to the student, they are allowed to speak) to call on students to participate. Students tend to like this and it allows for movement. The teacher will ensure that each student gets a chance to answer one question.
 Students that require extended time will be granted more time, and the same applies for students requiring separate settings. The students will be met on their level.
Checking For Understanding:
 The teacher will check the work of each student and will offer more practice during the next day's morning work.
 The teacher will collect the activity sheets and ask the students their thoughts on the lesson. The teacher will ask why topics such as this are important and have students provide situations where this skill could be beneficial.
 The students will be assessed through the weekly skills test that is conducted each Thursday. If the student is determined to have not mastered the concept, re-teaching will occur on Friday.
