Addition Within 20 Bundle with Game

1st Grade • Lesson Plan Bundle

Lesson Plan Description

Foundational number sense skills are the essential building blocks for advanced mathematical skills.  Practice, practice and more practice in different ways will help “cement” their understanding of addition to 20.  Your students will:

  • Segment 1: collaborate with partners, practice the language of math, use different strategies such as counting on, making ten, making easier known sums, and using number grids and number lines to solve addition problems
  • Segment 2: demonstrate their understanding by playing 3 games –  “Addition War,” “Solve and Cover,” and “Roll and Race” to practice addition within 20

These lessons can be taught over the span of a half day or you can use the lessons independently, broken up over several days.
