Lesson 1

Warm-up: How Many Do You See: Within 10 (10 minutes)

Narrative

The purpose of this How Many Do You See is to allow students to use subitizing or grouping strategies to describe the images they see. The images encourage students to use addition or subtraction within 10. Students may add the red and yellow counters or use the structure of the 10-frame and subtract the number of empty spaces from 10.

Launch

• Groups of 2
• “How many do you see? How do you see them?”
• Flash the image.
• 30 seconds: quiet think time

Activity

• Display the image.
• 1 minute: partner discussion
• Record responses.
• Repeat for each image.

Student Facing

How many do you see?
How do you see them?

Activity Synthesis

• “How can the 10-frame help you know the sum of two numbers?” (When I look at a 10-frame I can tell how many are there without counting. When I see two numbers in the 10-frame, I can tell what the sum is by looking at how many empty spaces there are and subtracting from 10.)

Activity 1: Sums I've Got (15 minutes)

Narrative

The purpose of this activity is for students to identify the sums within 10 that they do not yet know from memory. Students write these sums on index cards which can then be used as flash cards in order to help students practice fluency throughout the unit.

Action and Expression: Internalize Executive Functions. As students skip around on the chart, invite them to use a second colored pencil to color in the sums they do not yet know from memory.
Supports accessibility for: Memory, Organization

Required Materials

Materials to Gather

Launch

• Give students colored pencils and index cards.
• “Today we are going to revisit sums with values up to 10. We will identify the sums we know the value of from memory and the sums we are still working on."
• Demonstrate saying the value of some of the sums you know aloud, then quickly coloring in that box of the chart. Demonstrate skipping around on the chart, rather than moving down a row or column, to avoid using patterns to identify sums that students aren’t fluent with yet.
• “Look at each expression in the chart and color in all the sums you know from memory. When you are done, you will probably have some boxes that are not colored in. These are the sums you are still working on. Write each of these sums on a card. Then use the cards to practice these sums.”

Activity

• 10 minutes: independent work time
• Monitor for sums many students identify they still need to work on.

Student Facing

Color the sums you know the value of from memory.

Write each sum that is not colored, on an index card.

Use the cards to practice these sums.

Activity Synthesis

• “Many of us have a few sums we are still working on. How can we practice these sums so we find their values with fluency?” (We can think of sums we do know quickly that are like the ones we don't know quickly. We can look for ways to make those sums easier. We can have someone quiz us on them. We can practice different ways that are faster than counting all or using our fingers.)

Activity 2: Centers: Choice Time (25 minutes)

Narrative

The purpose of this activity is for students to choose from activities that focus on building fluency adding within 10. Students choose from previously introduced centers.

• Check It Off
• Number Puzzles
• Capture Squares
MLR8 Discussion Supports. Synthesis: Provide students with the opportunity to rehearse what they will say with a partner before they share with the whole class.

Required Materials

Materials to Gather

Required Preparation

• Gather materials from previous centers:
• Check It Off, Stage 1
• Number Puzzles, Stage 1
• Capture Squares, Stage 1

Launch

• Groups of 2
• “Today we are going to choose from centers we have already learned.”
• Display the center choices in the student book.
• “Think about what you would like to do first.”
• 30 seconds: quiet think time

Activity

• Invite students to work at the center of their choice.
• 10 minutes: center work time
• “Choose what you would like to do next.”
• 10 minutes: center work time

Choose a center.

Check it Off

Number Puzzles

Capture Squares

Activity Synthesis

• “Is it more helpful to practice sums on your index cards, or to play games using addition within 10?” (Index cards because you only focus on the ones you don’t know yet. Games because you get to practice lots of different facts and it is more fun.)

Lesson Synthesis

Lesson Synthesis

“Today we identified the sums within 10 we still need to work on in order to know them from memory. Why is it important to know the sums within 10 from memory?” (When we work with larger numbers we will need the sums within 10. So we don’t have to draw a picture or count to solve every problem.)
