Michele and I just finished up Unit 9-Addition for our small group lessons. We already taught our kids addition and subtraction, but this unit is meant to go even deeper with just addition. We want our kids to have accuracy and automaticity for these facts! We decided to build our units by considering these three things:
Strategies, Tools, and Conceptual/pictorial/abstract
- Adding On
- Flip and Add on
- Adding One or Zero
- Making a Double
- tens frames
- fives frames
- number bonds
- number line
One of the activities in the unit is a bump game. We make all of our games in color and black and white so that you have a choice of how to print.
Each lesson has a detailed lesson plan that includes the standard, directions and modifications for three different levels. That’s right….one prep, one game, but play it 3 different ways to meet the needs of all of your learners.
We also include picture directions for each of the games. I am such a visual learner, that it makes it easier for me to see the directions pictorially.
These easy prep lessons are all included in this new unit.
