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.
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.
Students get practice composing and comparing two-digit numbers as they compete to collect the most cards while playing the Hungry Alligator game. This lesson can be used alone or with the lesson plan **Greater than Less Than Equal to Game.**
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.
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.**
Dive deep into word problems with this lesson that teaches students to sketch base-ten blocks to add multiples of 10 and two-digit numbers. Use alone or with the lesson plan **Let's Build It! Two-Digit Addition.**
Use this beginning of the year activity to practice counting! Students solidify an understanding of one-to-one correspondence as they compete to fill three towers. Use this EL Support Lesson alone, or alongside the lesson plan **Counting Collections.**
Students will get plenty of practice counting and writing numbers to 30 as they compete to win this fun game! Use this scaffolded EL Support Lesson alone, or alongside the lesson plan **I Spy Counting Practice.**
