First grade 10 more 10 less understanding is put to the test as students work through a 5 Day Focus math intervention plan to mentally add and subtract ten. This math intervention resource includes assessment, detailed lessons, hands-on instructional activities and math centers that can be used for weeks to come. Your RtI block has been planned, top to bottom, for you!
First grade place value understanding is improved through research based strategies by which students begin with concrete models, move to drawings and finally mentally add and subtract ten from given numbers.
I have designed this 5 day program centered around small group instruction, however, the activities and independent centers can be used long after initial implementation. The skill is not expected to be mastered within the 5 day period, however, your students will be well equipped to continue study through independent practice.
Included you will find:
✎ Overview and Organization
The 5 Day Focus resources are designed to be informative and easy to use. I have included an overview of the related standards, an outline organizing the breakdown of how the topic is taught, a table of contents and a page outlining any and all materials that will be needed. I want you to be able to spend your time and energy on looking at your students results and reflecting on their learning- NOT on organizing materials and trying to figure out how to use this resource!
Pre and Post Assessment Materials that mirror one another will allow you to see where your students began and how far they have progressed. I have also included daily exit tickets and a tracking form so that you can easily monitor each of your students.
✎ Direct Instruction
Instructional lesson activities to use with small groups or individual students. Each of these lessons is detailed and includes hands-on activities. There is gradual release across the 5 days beginning with more concrete models and moving away towards representative and, finally, abstract models. This research based progression will surely help your students to progress.
✎ Independent Centers
Each of the 5 lessons also includes an independent practice activity. The independent activities have been created in the style of math centers so that they can be used directly after the instructional lesson but so they can also be used and re-used as students practice their skills.
I am confident that this resource will improve your first grader's place value understanding and ability to add and subtract ten. This teaching sequence has worked wonders for my own students and I am happy to be able to present this resource to you!
