The purpose of this lesson is for students to add within 10 when one addend is 1 or 2.
This lesson builds on the understanding developed in kindergarten, that each successive number name refers to a quantity that is one larger. Students relate addition to counting and see that adding one or two more is the same as counting one or two more (MP8). This deepens their understanding of the structure of the counting sequence (MP7).
Center Choice Time is introduced for the first time in this lesson. During center choice times, students choose the activities they would like to do, choosing from previously introduced center activities. Although there are four centers to choose from in this lesson, not all centers need to be offered at this time. This is an opportunity to introduce classroom structures that will be used during center time throughout the year.
Tell students they will have an opportunity to revise their math community ideas at the end of this lesson, so as they work today they should think about actions that may be missing from the current list.
