 “Who can restate the pattern in different words?”
 “What do you predict would come after 82? Why?”
Activity 1: Noah’s Collection (15 minutes)
Narrative
The purpose of this activity is for students to solve a Take From, Result Unknown story problem in which the minuend is in the teens. Students solve using any method that makes sense to them, which could include using double 10frames, connecting cubes, or drawings, and counting back or counting on (MP1).
Monitor and select students with the following methods to share in the synthesis:
 cross off 8 and count remaining or see it as 10 and 1
 count on from 8 to 19
 know the ten stays the same, subtract \(9  8\)
Supports accessibility for: Conceptual Processing, Organization
Required Materials
Materials to Gather
Launch
 Groups of 2
 Give students access to double 10frames and connecting cubes or twocolor counters.
Activity
 Read the task statement.
 4 minutes: independent work time
 3 minutes: partner discussion
 Monitor for students using methods listed in the narrative.
Student Facing
He has 19 game pieces arranged like this in his bin.
He takes out 8 game pieces to play with.
How many game pieces are left in the bin?
Show your thinking using drawings, numbers, or words.

Activity Synthesis
 “What do you notice about how the game pieces are organized? How can that help us solve the story problem?” (They are in two 10frames. Since I know there are 5 in each row, I can take away 5 and then 3 more.)
 Invite previously identified students to share in the given order.
 “How are these methods the same? How are they different?” (They are the same because they all show 19 game pieces and the 8 he took out. They all got 11. They are different because one counts on, one counts back, and the other doesn't count at all.)
 “What equation could we write to represent the problem?” (\(19  8 = \boxed{11}\), \(8 + \boxed {11} = 19\))
Activity 2: Addition and Subtraction Equations with Teen Numbers (10 minutes)
Narrative
Required Materials
Materials to Gather
Launch
 Groups of 2
 Give students access to double 10frames and connecting cubes or twocolors counters.
Activity
 Read the task statement.
 “You will work on your own at first, then you will share with a partner.”
 5 minutes: independent work time
 3 minutes: partner discussion
 Monitor for students who find the value that makes the equation \(19  8 = \boxed{\phantom{3}}\) true by taking away 8 or counting on from 8 to 19 using double 10frames and counters or drawings. These methods will be discussed in the lesson synthesis.
Student Facing
Find the number that makes each equation true.
Be ready to explain your thinking in a way that others will understand.
 \(13 + 4 = \boxed{\phantom{\frac{aaai}{aaai}}}\)
 \(16 + \boxed{\phantom{\frac{aaai}{aaai}}} = 17\)
 \(19  8 = \boxed{\phantom{\frac{aaai}{aaai}}}\)
 \(14  2 = \boxed{\phantom{\frac{aaai}{aaai}}}\)
 \(11 + \boxed{\phantom{\frac{aaai}{aaai}}} = 17\)

\(\boxed{\phantom{\frac{aaai}{aaai}}} + 1 = 18\)

Activity 3: Introduce Shake and Spill, Cover (up to 20) (15 minutes)
Narrative
The purpose of this activity is for students to learn stage 5 of the Shake and Spill center. Students use between 1120 counters. One partner shakes, spills, and covers up the yellow counters with a cup. The other partner determines how many counters are under the cup and explains how they know. Both partners record the round with an equation.
Advances: Speaking
Required Materials

Materials to Copy
 Shake and Spill Stage 4 and 5 Recording Sheet (G1 and 2)
Launch
 Groups of 2
 Give each group a cup, twocolor counters, and recording sheets.
 “We are going to learn a new way to play the Shake and Spill center. We will play Shake and Spill, Cover, with more than 10 counters.”
 “First, you and your partner decide how many counters you want to use. You can use 11–20 counters. Then you play the same way we have played in the past. One partner shakes and spills the counters and covers the yellow counters with the cup. Their partner needs to figure out how many yellow counters are under the cup. Then both partners write an equation to match the counters.”
Activity
 10 minutes: partner work time
Activity Synthesis
 Display five red counters and cover ten yellow counters under the cup.
 “My partner and I are playing with 15 counters. How many yellow counters are under the cup? How do you know?”
Lesson Synthesis
Lesson Synthesis
“Today we added and subtracted with teen numbers.”
Display \(19  8 = \boxed{\phantom{3}}\).
Invite previously identified students to share.
“Which method would you recommend to a friend? Why?” (I would recommend building numbers on 10frames and taking away because it’s easier to use the counters. I would recommend counting on because it is faster than using counters.)
