Activities

Objectives

The students will explain addition and subtraction and use appropriate math vocabulary.

Introductory Activities

I will first start off by explaining what addtion and subtraction are.  I will explain that addition is adding things together to form a group.  Subtraction is taking things away.  I will model addition and subtraction by using blocks.  After I model with the blocks a few times, I will demonstrate a property and call on the students to say whether I am doing addition or subtraction. 

Developmental Activities

I will give each student a different number of blocks.  I will then ask them to pair up with a partner that has the appropriate amount of blocks to equal the number I call out.  For subtraction, I will ask them to find the person with the number of blocks they need to take away to get the answer. 

Culminating Activities

I will model for the students a word problem, using circles or squares to represent the numbers.  I will draw a certain number plus or minus a certain number is an answer.  I will ask them to identify whether I am using addition or subtraction. 

Evaluation

To evaluate the students, I will give them a worksheet using the activity I modeled earlier and ask them to identify whether addition or subtraction is being used. 

Alternate Activities

If we are not able to do the worksheet, I will write the problems on the board and get them to answer them.
