6. Add and subtract within 20.

a. Demonstrate fluency with addition and subtraction facts with sums or differences to 10 by counting on.

b. Demonstrate fluency with addition and subtraction facts with sums or differences to 10 by making ten.

c. Demonstrate fluency with addition and subtraction facts with sums or differences to 10 by decomposing a number leading to a ten.

Title: Let's Throw Paper!! Addition Game
Description:

Students will throw addition problems or answers (on paper) across the classroom and find the matching problem or answer! Students will use mental math to compute the matching answer. Students will quietly walk around the classroom to find the person with the matching paper. Let’s throw math around!

This is a College- and Career-Ready Standards showcase lesson plan.

3. Apply properties of operations as strategies to add and subtract.

Examples: If 8 + 3 = 11 is known, then 3 + 8 = 11 is also known (commutative property of addition).
To add 2 + 6 + 4, the second and third numbers can be added to make a ten, so 2 + 6 + 4 = 2 + 10 = 12 (associative property of addition).
When adding 0 to a number, the result is the same number (identity property of zero for addition).

4. Explain subtraction as an unknown-addend problem.

Example: subtracting 10 - 8 by finding the number that makes 10 when added to 8

5. Relate counting to addition and subtraction.

Example: counting on 2 to add 2

Title: Snap to It... Making Numbers
Description:

This learning activity is a fun and interactive game. It will develop number sense by composing and decomposing numbers as well as building a foundation for place value skills. It can be used in whole group and small group instruction.  Before this game, the students will need to know strategies for making numbers in different ways. After the students are comfortable with this game, it can be varied by playing it with breaking into three parts. Students will have the opportunity to use several of the mathematical practices. This task allows the teacher to assess students' mathematical understanding.
