### LESSON INSTRUCTION

###### INTRODUCTION

- Ask students if they know what addition is and what the plus sign (+) means.
- Show them the addition sentence cards and explain that they will be learning about adding 2.
- Explain that they will use counters or cubes to help them solve the problems.
- 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

- Write the addition sentence 2+1 on the whiteboard and explain that they will be adding 2 to the numbers on the cards.
- 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.
- 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.
- Repeat with 2+4, 2+5, and 2+6, gradually increasing the difficulty level.
- Explain that they can use the same strategy to solve any addition sentence with 2.

###### GUIDED PRACTICE

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

###### INDEPENDENT PRACTICE

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

###### HOMEWORK

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

###### EXIT TICKET

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

###### ASSESSMENT

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

###### CLOSURE

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

###### EXTENSION

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

###### INTERVENTION

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

###### VIDEOS

No Video Available

### 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.

### 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.
