## Learning Objectives

Students will be able to represent putting together and addition concepts by adding 1 to previous numbers up to at least 10.

## Lesson

### Introduction (10 minutes)

• Read 10 Apples Up On Top! by Dr. Seuss
• Advise students to note the concept of addition by noticing "1 more" when it is mentioned in the story.

### Explicit Instruction/Teacher Modeling (5 minutes)

• Draw a face on the board.
• Have students count along as you add an apple shape one at a time.
• Label the apples from 1-10 as you go.

### Guided Practice/Interactive Modeling (5 minutes)

• Have your students add by 1 with bingo chips or counters as you add by 1 as a group.

### Independent Working Time (10 minutes)

• Tell your students you will be making a book. At this point you will either provide your students with the template packet individually or work on a class book as a group.
• Use the Bingo dabber or students' fingerprints from the ink pad to add the corresponding amount of "apples" for each subsequent number.
• If creating a class book, you may have the students follow along with their bingo chips or counters.

## Extend

### Differentiation

• Enrichment: For advanced students, they may be able to work independently or label the number on the page.
• Support: For students who require support, you may use hand over hand assistance, pair them with a student with a stronger grasp of the concept, or provide them with manipulatives to aid the addition process.

## Review

### Assessment (5 minutes)

• You may have the students use small wooden blocks or counting cubes to count to ten, and then check them.

### Review and Closing (10 minutes)

• Read the class book or have the students share their books with partners or a group.
• Display the book or books in your class library or have students share their work during a parent involvement activity.
