#### Objectives

Students will be able to solve basic addition problems to 20.

##### Language

Students will be able to use sequencing words to explain the steps to add two numbers with sums within 20 using manipulatives and peer support.

#### Introduction

(5 minutes)
• Tell students the story problem, "Astrid loves to read! On Saturday she read six books. On Sunday she read seven more books. How many books did she read over the weekend?"
• Quickly review the days of the week, and remind students that Saturday and Sunday are days of the weekend. These are days we don't have school.
• Ask students to turn and talk to a partner to explain the problem in their own words.
• Call on student volunteers to suggest strategies for solving the problem. Strategies can include drawing a rectangle for each book Astrid read, and then counting the total number of rectangles, using a number line, counting blocks, or writing an equation.
