### LESSON INSTRUCTION

###### INTRODUCTION

- Begin the lesson by asking students what they know about addition.
- Explain that addition is the process of putting things together or finding the total of two or more numbers.
- Show a visual representation of addition using counting objects and a whiteboard.

###### INSTRUCTION

- Introduce the concept of adding 0 to an addition sentence. Explain that adding 0 to a number does not change the value of that number.
- Model how to add 0 to a number using a whiteboard and counting objects.
- Show students addition flashcards with sums up to 10 and demonstrate how to add 0 to an addend.
- Provide examples of addition sentences that involve adding 0, such as 3 + 0 = 3 and 7 + 0 = 7.
- Write addition sentences on the board and ask students to add 0 to the second addend.

###### GUIDED PRACTICE

- Distribute a worksheet pack containing addition sentences involving adding 0.
- Work through the first few problems together as a class, using counting objects to demonstrate adding 0.
- Encourage students to use their fingers or other manipulatives to help them add 0 to the second addend.
- Walk around the room to provide support and guidance as needed.

###### INDEPENDENT PRACTICE

- Give students another worksheet pack containing addition sentences involving adding 0.
- Ask them to complete the worksheet independently, using counting objects or other manipulatives to help them add 0 to the second addend.
- Circulate around the room to provide support and guidance as needed.

###### HOMEWORK

- Ask students to find three real-life objects at home and write an addition sentence for each object involving adding 0.
- Instruct students to solve the addition sentences using manipulatives and write the answers on a separate piece of paper.
- Remind students to bring their homework back to class to share with their classmates.

###### EXIT TICKET

- Provide each student with a whiteboard and marker.
- Instruct students to write an addition sentence involving adding 0.
- Ask students to hold up their whiteboards so you can check their work.

###### ASSESSMENT

- Ask students to share one addition sentence involving adding 0 and how they solved it.
- Use their responses to assess their understanding of adding 0 in addition sentences.

###### CLOSURE

- Review the concept of adding 0 in addition sentences with students.
- Encourage students to apply the concept of adding 0 in real-life situations, such as when counting objects or adding items in a shopping

###### EXTENSION

- Students can practice adding 0 to larger numbers or three-digit numbers.
- Students can create their own addition sentences involving adding 0 and solve them.
- Students can practice adding 0 in word problems involving real-life situations.

###### INTERVENTION

- For students who struggle with counting objects, provide them with a number line or ten frame to help them visualize adding 0.
- For students who need extra support, provide them with manipulatives and guided practice before transitioning to independent practice.

###### VIDEOS

No Video Available

### TEACHING TIPS

- Use manipulatives and visual aids to help students understand the concept of adding 0 in addition sentences.
- Provide opportunities for students to apply the concept of adding 0 in real-life situations, such as when counting objects or adding items in a shopping cart.
- Monitor student progress and adjust instruction as needed to meet the needs of all learners.

### STUDENT MISCONCEPTIONS

- Students may think that adding 0 changes the value of a number.
- Students may struggle to apply the concept of adding 0 in word problems or real-life situations.
- Students may confuse addition and subtraction, leading to errors when solving addition sentences.

### STANDARD

##### Common Core Standard:

1.OA.C.6 - Add and subtract within 20, demonstrating fluency for addition and subtraction within 10. Use strategies such as counting on; making ten; decomposing a number leading to a ten; using the relationship between addition and subtraction.
