Basic Math Operations Lesson Plans

  • Addition and Subtraction Practice - Students will be able to explain what carry forward and what borrow means in relation to math.
  • Card Play - The ability to use mental math and come up with problem solving techniques.
  • Comprehension: Stripes - Learners will demonstrate their ability to read, solve, and represent addition story problems by using the circle drawing technique.
  • Division For Third Graders- To use measurement to demonstrate division.
  1. Establishing Base line Math Skills - Determine student's ability in solving addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division problems.
  2. Expressions from Sentences- Learn to turn word sentences into algebraic expressions.
  3. Help students stay focused on long division problems- I expect them to write down the D,M,S and down arrow right next to every single division problem that they have to solve.
  4. Increasing Speed with Addition and Subtraction - Increase your speed and accuracy week to week.
  5. Integers: Quick, Fun, Easy to Learn -This will give the students the knowledge to extend the whole number system in both directions as well as magnitude.
  6. Kindergarten Math Lessons to meet CA Standards- Students sort and classify objects.
  7. Magic Squares = Unknowns - Using literature and the topic of magic squares, students will be introduced to finding unknowns.
  8. Multiplication Grouping - The goal for this lesson is for students to understand how addition and multiplication go hand and hand.
  9. PIG/HOG- PIG is an addition game, played between two or more students (but they CAN play alone!). Sometimes I have the whole class play & I keep score.
  10. Steps To Reading Math Problems - Given word problems, students will identify the sequence of events, using the words first, next, and then to find solutions to the problems.
  11. Tip for long division- When teaching long division, students often forget what to do next after they bring down a number.
  12. To regroup of NOT to regroup - SBAT understand when regrouping is necessary and when it is not.
