# Addition & Subtraction Guided Math Lesson Plans 3.2C 3.4A 3.4B 3.4C 3.5A 3.7B

Addition and Subtraction-TEKS: 3.2C, 3.4A, 3.4B, 3.4C, 3.5A, 3.7B

Addition and Subtraction. These plans are for 17 days of instruction. In this unit, students begin working with estimation. The use of number lines and place value relationships from Foundations of Number will help them with estimation. One and two step problem involving addition and subtraction are practiced using strategies such as place value, properties of operations and different pictorial representations. This unit also practices counting a collection of coins.

Each day contains objective, learning targets, materials, whole class teaching activity, guided math activity and closure with an exit ticket and answer key for most days.
Whole Class teaching in this unit contains:
KWL (Preview Assessment)
Math Huddle (Math Talk)
Mini Lessons (Connection, Teaching Point, Active Engagement and Link to Ongoing Learning)

Games in this unit include:
SCOOT:
Counting a Collection of Coins, Find the Perimeter
SCOOT Extensions:
Counting a Collection of Coins and Subtracting Some, Find the Missing Side Perimeter
Word Problem Puzzles

This unit is designed to print and go! . I keep mine in a binder. You can put each day and all of the materials for that day in one sheet protector.

I hope this unit helps you get started with Guided Math- you can’t beat \$1.17 per day for a complete unit!

# Foundations of Number Guided Math Lesson Plans 3.2A, 3.2B, and 3.2D

TEKS: 3.1A, 3.1B, 3.1C, 3.1D, 3.1E, 3.1F, 3.1G, 3.2A, 3.2B, and 3.2D

Foundations of Number. In this unit, students will learn place value through 100,000. They will compose and decompose numbers with concrete objects, pictorial models and expanded form. They will also compare and order numbers using symbols and words. This unit is scheduled for 8 days.

I have broken down each TEK into Learning Targets to make it easier to track student progress. A student data sheet is included for students to reflect on their own learning for the unit.

Each day contains objective, learning targets, materials, whole class teaching activity, guided math activity and closure with an exit ticket and answer key for most days.

# Foundations of Number Guided Math Lesson Plans 3.2A, 3.2B, and 3.2D

This unit is about composing and decomposing numbers.  It is important for students to be able to break apart numbers because in the next unit they will be adding and subtraction using place value.

Decomposing and composing numbers requires students to be flexible in their thinking.  Students need to explore the place value system so they understand it.  How many times do we ask students to perform an operation in a problem and they come up with a number that isn't possible.  When asked if the number is reasonable, they have no way to answer. To begin this unit, we ask students to decide whether each statement is true or false.  We don't guide or help.  We just want to know what their level of understanding is for number concepts.

When the unit is finished, we do this activity again to see if their thinking has changed. Anticipation Guides are a perfect way to explore what students already know!  When I write them, I try to use the possible misconceptions that students have about a topic.

# Algebraic Reasoning All Operations

Algebraic Reasoning with all operations is a fun unit to teach!  We will be teaching one and two step problem solving with the whole gang of strategies- number lines, strip diagrams, equations, arrays, area models and tables.  Thankfully these are not new!  In this unit students begin to solve more complex problems.  They require multiple operations and math reasoning comes into play.  Students will really need practice and lots of paper to draw, make models and use strategies!

A few things are new to students in this unit- 3.5E number pairs in a table (a separate post is here about this topic), 3.6D Decomposing to find area, and 3.8B problem solving using a graph or table.

When teaching 3.6D, focus on finding the rectangle and relate it to the area model. A great way to start is by doing a math huddle.  This year we are trying this one. We are using the one on the right, but have the one on the left just in case the groups get really stuck! Give the kids the problem on the first day of instruction- without teaching them how to do it!  Let them use what they know about area from the previous units to come up with a strategy.  Let them share what they are doing!

This unit is packed with activities to make learning fun!  It even has a digital breakout for the end of the unit review!

If you want your weekends back- no time spent writing lesson plans and hunting activities that are aligned to the TEKS- click the image below!

# 2 Dimensional and 3 Dimensional Figures

This unit is a big one!  The TEK is: classify and sort two- and three-dimensional figures, including cones, cylinders, spheres, triangular and rectangular prisms, and cubes, based on attributes using formal geometric language.

The 3D is not too bad, but understanding the 2D is kinda crazy!   In second grade they classified based on number of sides.  They learned to count the sides and name the figure.  This year, they will be looking at new attributes- the side length, sides that are equal distance apart opposite angles that are congruent and square corners.  This is the year students learn about equilateral, isosceles and scalene triangles.  They learn about the attributes of quadrilaterals- parallelograms, rhombuses, trapezoids, rectangles and squares.  They learn about the attributes that help classify these shapes.  It is important to teach students to identify shapes by their attributes and not just by recognizing the shape.
