# Lesson Plan Template

• #### Vocabulary

Addition: The process of finding the total number by combining two or more groups.

Sum: The result of adding two or more numbers.

Groups: Sets of objects being counted or added together.

### Materials and Preparation

• TeachTastic Worksheet Pack for "Adding with Pictures"
• Whiteboard and markers
• Visual aids (pictures of objects, e.g., apples, stars, or animals)
• Manipulatives (counters or blocks)

### Learning Objectives

• Students will be able to count objects in groups.
• Students will be able to combine two groups of objects and find the total sum.
• Students will be able to solve addition problems with sums up to 10.

### Introduction

Begin the lesson by showing a picture of two groups of objects. For example, display a picture with 3 apples in one group and 2 apples in another group. Ask the students how many apples there are in total. Discuss that we can use addition to find out how many objects we have altogether by counting both groups.

### Explicit Instruction/Teacher modeling

Demonstrate how to add using pictures. Draw two groups of birds on the whiteboard, one group with 3 birds and another group with 2 birds. Count each group separately, and then combine the groups by counting all the birds together. Write the equation 3 + 2 = 5 on the board and explain how the sum is found by combining the two groups.

### Guided Practice

Hand out worksheets from the TeachTastic Worksheet Pack. Guide students through a few problems, such as:

• Count the first group of 3 stars.
• Count the second group of 4 stars.
• Combine the groups and count all the stars together to find the sum (3 + 4 = 7).

Provide assistance and feedback as students work through these problems.

### Independent Practice

Allow students to work independently on additional problems in the TeachTastic Worksheet Pack. Encourage them to use the pictures provided to count and find the sums. Problems will include various combinations of groups with sums up to 10.

## Support

• Provide one-on-one assistance for students who struggle with counting and adding.
• Use manipulatives like counters or blocks to help visualize the addition process.
• Offer additional practice problems with smaller sums to build confidence.

## Extension

• Challenge students with problems that include more than two groups of objects to add.
• Introduce simple word problems that require addition to solve.
• Have students create their own addition problems using pictures and share them with the class.

### Assessment

Evaluate students' understanding through their work on the worksheets and their exit tickets. Check for accuracy in counting and adding the groups of objects. Use the TeachTastic Worksheet Pack to assess their ability to solve addition problems with sums up to 10.

### Review and closing

Summarize the key points of the lesson by reviewing how to count and add groups of objects. Address any common misconceptions, such as counting the same objects twice or missing objects. Allow students to ask questions and share their thoughts about the lesson.

### Misconceptions

1. Counting the same objects twice.
2. Missing objects while counting.
3. Confusing the order of numbers in the equation.
