Mathematics/1st grade
1.OA.A.1 Represent and solve problems involving addition and subtraction using addition and subtraction within 20 to
solve word problems with unknowns in all positons.
Math Practice:
1. Make sense of problems and persevere in solving them
2. Model with mathematics
Objective (Explicit):
Students will be able to solve mathematic addition problems using counting up strategy or subtraction
Instructional Input
Evidence of Mastery (Measurable assessment):
After each student will go through each activity, they will hand in the 4 chart worksheets as a checklist assessment. For a
formative assessment, the teacher will have a post worksheet of 8 questions that have similar concepts from the four
activities. Students will need to get 80% or better to show mastery of addition in any situation.
Key vocabulary:
Activity 1 popcorn bags of 10, pencil, worksheet
-how much more
Activity 2 pyramid blocks, pencil, worksheet
-add up/count up
Activity 3 sets of pajamas, pencil, worksheet
-take away
Activity 4 coin manipulatives, pencil, flash cards,
Opening/Anticipatory Set: (state objectives, connect to previous learning, and make relevant to real life)
Teacher will gather students at the carpet. “Good morning/afternoon students, I have some cool activities that we get to
build, eat, or use money that relates to all the math books we read last week. Last week, we practiced how to add two
different WHOLE numbers to find the SUM, how to find the math problems in a reading problem, and how to use addition
to count money. We are going to use that prior knowledge and skills to solve our four story activities”

Student Will:
Activity 1
Activity 1
-Teacher will have students sit on the carpet in a big
-Students will listen
circle and bring out the first center bin activity
-Teacher will then say “The first game will be POPPIN
IN 10. In the story students were trying to catch popcorn
in their mouth and we will be doing the same.” Teacher
will then show 10 pieces of popcorn in a zip-block bag.
-Teacher will say “For this activity there will be partners,
the first partner will try to catch as many popcorn as they
can and the other person will mark down how much they
caught in their mouth. Before each partner pops in their
popcorn in their mouth, they need to make sure they start
with 10, so double-check your zip-block bag to make
sure there is 10. How many are in each bag?”
-Teacher will say “Here is a paper where you will write
down you and your partner’s data of the popcorn to write
how many popcorns they caught. In the totals box you
will need to write 10 because you will have a total of ten
-Students will say 10
popcorn pieces before you start. When your partner is
finished they will write how many were caught in their
OWN space.”
Activity 2
Activity 2
-Teacher will bring out the second center activity bin and -Students should say bottom because it’s the first level
say “The next activity will be ‘Can you build a Pyramid?’ they will need to create
The object of this activity is to build a solid pyramid with
10 or more blocks. For this pyramid, you can only have
three levels, the bottom, middle, and top. Working with a
partner, you will both need to record the number of
blocks used to build a pyramid for each layer. What level
would be the first one you will record?”
-Teacher will say “The bottom level would be the first
number to record because it’s the foundation of the
pyramid and we need to build down before we can build
up.” Teacher will bring out worksheet for that activity
-Teacher will then say “Here is where you would put the
number of blocks used for each level. This is where you
will record the bottom level amount.” Teacher will point
to the first column.
Activity 3
-Teacher will bring out the third center activity bin and
say “the next center is ‘Mixed-match PJs’. There is 3 big
bags of pajama sets you will need to sort, match, and
figure out how many pj shirts and bottoms are there.
There might be more pj shirts or bottoms. Your job will
be to determine which group has more, shirts or
bottoms.” Teacher will bring out the first set out
Activity 3
-Students will listen
-Teacher will say “the first step is to sort out the shirts
and the bottoms. You will then write down the number of
shirts and the record the other bottoms after.” Teacher
will bring out worksheet to show students where to
record the amount of shirts and bottoms.
-Teacher will say “Each bag has THREE different letters
(A,B,C) on top of each bag. In this column, everyone
needs to write down what set they had before recording
the number of shirts and bottoms in this area.” Teacher
will point to first column. “What do you write first?”
Students should say “the bag they have, the set letter”
Activity 4
Activity 4
-Teacher will bring out fourth center activity bin and say -Students will listen
“This is the last activity called ‘Penny Galore!’. There are
playing cards with pictures of 1 penny, a nickel and a
penny, or three pennies and a nickel. You and a partner
will pick one card each and record both yourself and the
card your partner picked on this worksheet.” Teacher
shows the penny worksheet and the slots where the
students will write down the pennies, etc.
-Teacher will say “After you pick 6 cards EACH, you
will then add the total amount by yourself to get the SUM
of the pennies. How many cards does each person pick
-Students will say “6!”
Guided Practice
-Activity 4: For the Learning Disability student, the teacher would have a half sheet with the equal values of
pennies. For example, one key would be 5 pennies=1 nickel, 10 pennies= 1 dime, 2 nickels=1 dime. This will help
student by knowing the values of each coins.
Teacher Will:
Teacher will separate the groups evenly due to all
activities needing a partner.
Student Will:
Activity 1
-Teacher will say “After both partners are done catching
the popcorn, you will need to figure out what is the
amount of popcorn you missed. If I only caught one
popcorn in my mouth, how much popcorn did I miss if I
had a total of 10 pieces?”
Activity 1
-Students will conduct the popcorn catching and record
their own and partner’s numbers
-Student will say 9 pieces that the teacher missed
-Student will find missing addend with their partner
using addition/subtraction concepts
Activity 2
-Teacher will say “after all the levels are built, you will
find the total amount of blocks used. You will add all
three numbers of the blocks to get the sum.”
Activity 2
-Students will build each level and record the number
of blocks
-students will add the 3 numbers of the different levels
Activity 3
-Teacher will say “After you sort and separate the
clothing, you will count each item, in this column
(teacher points to what was there more of column on
worksheet) you need to answer which pj set was there
more of, the shirts or bottoms? Then you will solve how
many more did the other pj set have.”
Activity 3
-Students will sort and separate shirts and bottoms
-Students will record both amounts and write in the
next column what there was more of
-Students can use subtraction or addition to determine
how much more did one pile have
Teacher Will:
Activity 4
-Teacher will say “After each person picks 6 cards and
gets their 6 equations, you will independently solve the
problems. In the last column if you know there is more
than one way to write your answer you can draw or write
the coin amount”
Student Will:
Activity 4
-Students will pick out six cards each and write down
what is on the flash card
-Students will independently solve each coin equation
Closure/Lesson Summary:
After each student or group has been at four rotations (Each activity can take 1-2 days) teacher will bring class together to
go over what math concepts or equations they did for each activity. The class will talk to a neighbor and discuss how they
found their answers for each activity. To close the lesson, the teacher will then handout a second worksheet that has
problems from all four activities. Teacher will then collect them and to see their progress if they improved on word
problems in math and adding more than 2 whole numbers.
InTASC Reflection:
I believe the standard I grew progress is Standard 6-Assessment. The teacher understands and used
multiple methods of assessments to engage learners in their own growth, to monitor learner progress,
and to guide the teacher’s and learner’s decision making. How I showed progress in this standard is that
I’m doing different checklist (formative assessment) for each center to see if they are using the correct
concepts and using previous knowledge to answer the problems. Another way I showed progress was
coming together and discussing it before they do a final summative assessment to see if they made
progress after activities were done.
