• This unit is jammed pack with everything you could possibly need for 1 week of math instruction. Lesson plans, paper saving printables, number chats, centers, games, and much more all with minimal prep and planning time for the teacher. This unit will help students master the addition and subtraction strategy: counting on from larger. This unit will help students increase fluency, and develop number sense and automaticity.
The lessons will begin with students solving addition problems by counting fish to add or crossing them out to subtract. In lesson 2, students will discover the commutative property of addition, or turn around facts, in connection with counting on from the larger number in the equation. This unit will give students a chance to practice their new turn around fact knowledge with a fun matching game. Lessons 3 and 4 will introduce some tools for counting on such as using fingers and a number line. The unit will wrap up on day 5 with a word problem designed to practice these new skills.
