Are you looking for a NO-PREP 1st grade math center resource that your students can do independently? This resource is for you! These two Nearpod lessons are both fun and interactive! Students will practice adding and subtracting numbers 1-20 using pictures. This resource is ideal for grades K-1 but can be used for intervention for grade 2 or enrichment for Pre-K. After saving a copy of both lessons, simply click on "Live Lesson" or "Student-Paced" and choose where to assign it. It can be directly assigned to Google Classroom. It is SO easy!!!
I absolutely LOVE using Nearpod for math!!! This is a great way for students to practice target math skills and show work digitally. Nearpod is an engaging and interactive way to deliver instruction through distance learning and/or support your math centers. You can create a free Nearpod account, and the instructions for doing so are included in this bundle. It only takes 2 minutes to sign up.
Students can either join the lesson by using a desktop/Chromebook and going to the Nearpod website OR students can use the app on a tablet/ipad.
Nearpod can be used in two ways. The lesson can be assigned to your whole class simultaneously, allowing you to control your students' screens even when in a different location. This makes it perfect for distance learning!!! It can also be assigned to individual students to complete at their leisure, again making it ideal for distance learning. I LOVE to assign Nearpod lessons as independent work during centers. It gives students the opportunity to practice when working independently. The best part is that you will have access to reports that show you all of their answers. This makes for very useful data!
Nearpod has been used with permission.
Topics include: classroom community, classroom management, differentiated instructions, Reading Workshop, and much much more!!!
This resource includes 2 Nearpod lessons: one for addition and one for subtraction.
The instructions on the slides are recorded so that students can complete these lessons independently. Each lesson has 20 slides and includes the following interactive activities:
- 3 slides where students review the meaning of sum or difference
- 1 brief instructional video that teaches students how to use pictures to add or subtract numbers up to 20
- 5 slides where students find the sum/difference using pictures
- 4 matching activities (2 with pictures for support and 2 without)
- 4 drag and drop activities where students use pictures to help answer an addition/subtraction sentence
- 3 slides where students draw pictures to help write their own addition/subtraction sentences
- an interactive game that serves as the lesson's exit ticket
The product is a PDF file with two links to make a copy of each lesson.
