Help students discover how to show numbers in different ways while providing ample opportunities for students to contribute to conversations. Use as a pre-lesson to Let's Jump to Add Two-Digit Numbers or as a stand-alone lesson.
Let’s start building numbers! Just as building skyscrapers is a visual representation of mathematics, students will use the visual representation of base-ten blocks to add—or build—onto a two-digit number.
Use this lesson to introduce the tool of base-ten blocks to your students. This scaffolded EL support lesson can be used as a stand-alone activity, or prior to teaching Three-Digit Addition with Base-Ten Models.
Students will get to explore three-digit numbers through base-ten blocks and written form. Students will get plenty of practice identifying the place values of a number both individually and with the class.
Students will get plenty of practice composing tens with ten frames to add to 20! Use this scaffolded EL Lesson alone or for more addition practice before teaching the **Scavenger Hunt Addition** lesson.
Challenge students to think about decimals while identifying numbers to the hundredths and thousandths. They'll discuss decimal attributes too. Use this lesson on its own or as support to the lesson Dividing Decimals: Estimation.
In this introductory math lesson, students will become familiar with the concept of counting and representing numbers with concrete materials. Your students will enjoy using their creativity as they practice representing the number three on their very own!
Expose your students to numerical sequencing and patterns with an interactive lesson that focuses on identifying, writing, and ordering numbers from 1-100. This lesson can be used alone or with the lesson plan **Popping Numbers.**
Counting collections are a great way to help students practice counting while gaining practice recording and justifying their thinking. Students will work specifically with the numbers 1-30 to develop fluency counting and writing numbers.
