Reflection: Advanced Students Addition Number Sentences - Section 3: Independent Practice


I know that I have several strong readers in the room and that they would finish this task pretty quickly.  Not only are they strong in reading, but they also began the school year with a good understanding of addition.  I planned ahead and decided that when their problems were matched up correctly, I would have them spend their time illustrating pictures of the story problems.  I have noticed over the years that there are always a few advanced students in my room and I need to have extension activities ready to go during math for those students to move through and not find their own thing to do that disrupts my teaching or others.  Watch my Advanced Student video showing how I gave further instructions to an advanced student.

Addition Number Sentences

Unit 13: Understanding Addition
Lesson 5 of 10

Objective: SWBAT match addition number sentences to the correct number story.

Big Idea: Our little ones love to find out they can write a "sentence" using numbers and symbols. They like to think it is a secret code they are learning. This lesson teaches them to express their problem and answer with an addition sentence.
