### INTRODUCTION

1. Begin the lesson by reminding students of the concept of addition and its symbol, the plus sign (+).
2. Display the addition flashcards and ask students to name the numbers and their sum.
3. Explain that in this lesson, students will learn how to fluently add one-digit numbers using any strategy they choose.

### INSTRUCTION

1. Explain to students that there are many strategies to add numbers, such as counting on, using a number line, or decomposing numbers.
2. Model each strategy using simple addition problems.
3. Model counting on by starting with a number and counting up to the sum.
4. Model using a number line by starting at the first number and jumping forward the second number of spaces.
5. Model decomposing numbers by breaking one of the addends into smaller parts and adding each part to the other addend.
6. Ask students to choose their favorite strategy and explain why they like it.

### GUIDED PRACTICE

1. Provide each student with an addition worksheet.
2. Ask students to choose a strategy and use it to solve the problems.
3. Circulate around the room to provide individual support and guidance as needed.

### INDEPENDENT PRACTICE

1. Provide students with another addition worksheet to complete independently.
2. Encourage students to use their chosen strategy to help them solve the problems.
3. Circulate around the room to provide individual support and guidance as needed.

### EXIT TICKET

1. Provide each student with a whiteboard and marker.
2. Instruct students to write an addition problem and show how they solved it using their chosen strategy.

### ASSESSMENT

1. Ask students to share their favorite strategy and explain how it helped them solve an addition problem.

### CLOSURE

1. Recap with the class what they learned in the lesson about fluently adding one-digit numbers using any strategy.
2. Encourage students to reflect on how they can apply these strategies in future math lessons and in everyday situations.
3. Provide positive reinforcement to the class for their hard work and progress throughout the lesson.

### EXTENSION

1. For students who have mastered adding one-digit numbers, provide them with more challenging addition problems that involve carrying or borrowing.
2. Students can practice adding multiple one-digit numbers using different strategies.
3. Students can create their own addition problems and challenge a partner to solve using any strategy.

### INTERVENTION

1. For students who struggle with number sense or have difficulty choosing appropriate strategies, provide them with a number line or visual aids to support them.
2. For students who need extra support, provide them with additional practice problems and one-on-one guidance during independent practice.
3. For students who need additional reinforcement, provide them with manipulatives such as base-10 blocks or counters to help them understand the concept of addition.

### VIDEOS

### TEACHING TIPS

• Provide visual aids such as a number line or manipulatives for students who need extra support.
• Encourage students to explain and justify their chosen addition strategy to promote critical thinking.
• Incorporate real-life examples of addition problems to make the lesson more engaging.

### STUDENT MISCONCEPTIONS

• Some students may struggle with understanding the concept of addition and its symbol, the plus sign.
• Students may think that there is only one correct way to solve an addition problem, instead of multiple strategies to choose from.
• Students may struggle with selecting appropriate strategies based on the given problem.
