Lesson Plans Add & Subtract Whole Numbers & Decimals 4.4A 4.2D 4.4G 4.10E 4.10B



Place Value of Whole Numbers and Decimals- Complete Lesson Plans for teaching rounding and compatible numbers, adding and subtracting whole numbers and decimals (griddable items included!), calculating profit and the purpose of financial institutions.

This unit is about rounding from the 10’s place to the 100,000’s place. Students will use a variety of strategies including number lines (open and scaled), rounding numerically based on place value, rounding to a common place and computing and determining a compatible numbers and computing. Students will learn to add and subtract decimals to the hundredths place. The will add and subtract whole numbers through the millions place using the standard algorithm. Students will learn about the function of financial institutions as well as how to calculate profit.

I have broken down each TEK into Learning Targets to make it easier to track student progress and make working in a PLC easier. There are 6 skills in this unit! Each learning target contains intervention and enrichment skills. A student data sheet is included for students to reflect on their own learning for the unit. A teacher tracking sheet is included to make small group instruction easier!

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. You can use the Learning Targets to get ideas on Intervention and Enrichment skills.
Whole Class teaching in this unit contains:

  • Mini Lessons (Connection, Teaching Point, Active Engagement and Link to Ongoing Learning)
  • Games

Games and Engagement Activities in this unit include:

  • Mirror Activity for Rounding
  • Mirror Activity for Adding and Subtracting Decimals- word problems
  • Ghost in the Graveyard- Adding and Subtracting Whole Numbers and Decimals, Rounding and compatible numbers
  • Video Discuss and Gallery Walk
  • SCOOT- Calculating Profit

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 with Guided Math by providing a whole class teach, active engagement, guided math activities and exit tickets for almost everyday- you can’t beat $1.25 per day for a complete unit!
