Lesson 5

Center Day 1 (optional)

Lesson Purpose

The purpose of this lesson is for students to practice adding numbers within 1,000.

Lesson Narrative

This lesson is optional because it is an opportunity for extra practice that not all classes may need. In Activity 1, students learn stage 7 of the Five in a Row: Addition and Subtraction center. In this new stage, students add within 1,000 without composing. In Activity 2, students choose to continue working on Five in a Row, or choose between two previously introduced centers focused on place value in three-digit numbers.
