LESSON INSTRUCTION

INTRODUCTION

  1. Ask students if they know what addition is and what the plus sign (+) means.
  2. Show them the addition sentence cards and explain that they will be learning about adding 2.
  3. Explain that they will use counters or cubes to help them solve the problems.
  4. Model how to use the counters or cubes to solve an addition sentence, such as 2+2, and write the number sentence on the whiteboard.

INSTRUCTION

  1. Write the addition sentence 2+1 on the whiteboard and explain that they will be adding 2 to the numbers on the cards.
  2. Model how to use the counters or cubes to solve the problem, starting with 1 cube and adding 2 more to make a total of 3.
  3. Have students practice solving 2+1, 2+2, and 2+3 using the counters or cubes and writing the number sentences on their own whiteboards.
  4. Repeat with 2+4, 2+5, and 2+6, gradually increasing the difficulty level.
  5. Explain that they can use the same strategy to solve any addition sentence with 2.

GUIDED PRACTICE

  1. Provide each student with a worksheet containing addition sentences adding 2.
  2. Have students use counters or cubes to solve the problems and write the number sentences on their worksheets.
  3. Circulate around the room to provide support and guidance as needed.

    INDEPENDENT PRACTICE

    1. Provide each student with another worksheet containing addition sentences adding 2.
    2. Have students solve the problems independently and write the number sentences on their worksheets.
    3. Circulate around the room to provide support and guidance as needed.

      HOMEWORK

      1. Ask students to find five addition sentences adding 2 in their textbook, workbook or any other source of their choice.
      2. Instruct students to solve the problems using counters or cubes and write the number sentences on a piece of paper.

        EXIT TICKET

        1. Ask students to write one addition sentence adding 2 on their whiteboard and solve it using counters or cubes.
        2. Circulate around the room to assess their understanding and provide support and guidance as needed.

          ASSESSMENT

          1. Ask students to share one addition sentence adding 2 they solved and how they solved it.
          2. Use their responses to assess their understanding of adding 2.

            CLOSURE

            1. Review with students what they learned about adding 2.
            2. Encourage students to practice adding 2 with counters or cubes and writing number sentences to represent the problems.

              EXTENSION

              1. For advanced learners, provide them with addition sentence cards adding 3 or 4 and have them solve the problems using counters or cubes.
              2. For students who need more practice, provide them with additional worksheets or manipulatives to work with.

              INTERVENTION

              1. For students who struggle with fine motor skills, provide larger counters or cubes or allow them to use their fingers to count.
              2. For students who struggle with the concept of addition, provide them with visual aids or manipulatives to help them understand the concept better.

              TEACHING TIPS

              • Use visuals such as number lines and ten frames to help students visualize the addition process.
              • Encourage students to explain their thinking and reasoning when solving addition sentences to reinforce their understanding.
              • Provide ample opportunities for hands-on practice with manipulatives to reinforce the concept of adding 2.

              STUDENT MISCONCEPTIONS

              • Confusing the order of the numbers in the addition sentence, leading to incorrect answers.
              • Failing to recognize the pattern in adding 2, leading to difficulty in solving more complex addition sentences.
              • Difficulty in identifying the concept of addition as a whole, leading to confusion when working with addition sentences.
