### Lesson Objective

Introduce multiple addition strategies such as tallies, fingers, pictures, numbers, mental math, etc.

### Lesson Plan

 1. What went well? 2. What would you change? 3. What needs explanation? Students enjoyed trying multiple strategies to solve one problem, this also gave them a better grasp of the concept of addition. I did not use the attached work sheet, student written work was a bit disorganized and hard to assess because of this. The use of tens blocks needs to be explained thoroughly the use of them is a very easy  segue for kids going into double digit addition, need to make sure and go explicitly over why we use tens blocks and how much easier they make a problem like 10+11. This will be given much more attention tomorrow but it’s worth referencing it’s importance in this lesson.
