Overview:

In this learning experience designed for littles (grades Pre-K through 2nd), Christine Pinto, Kindergarten teacher and co-author of Google Apps for Littles,  uses Google Sheets templates to help her students learn basic addition and give them early exposure to equations. Students can "make five", "make ten", "make twenty", following the colors in the Google Sheets cells.

The kids make their models by using single digit numbers according to the color key to color the cells. First, they fill in the blank cells with a color by typing the number that corresponds to the color. For example, they could fill three boxes with green, two with orange. Then they add their equation to the yellow box to show how it makes 5 (3 (green) plus 2 (orange) equals five). Then they check their answer in the blue box following the example.

Learning Outcomes :

• Students will be able to create equations that equal 5, 10, or 20.

• Students will be able to decompose a number and understand the purpose of the equal sign.

• Students will gain a foundational understanding for multiplication.

• Students will be able to write mathematical expressions.

Explain the representations of the quantities and actions in the situations using physical, pictorial, or symbolic representations.Teacher Vocabulary:Expression EquationKnowledge:Students know: how to represent addition and subtraction using models, pictures or symbolic representations. how to explain representations of quantities.Skills:Students are able to: Represent quantities and operations physically, pictorially, or symbolically. Use informational and mathematical language to communicate the connections among addition and subtraction.Understanding:Students understand that: both putting together and adding to can be viewed as addition. both taking apart and taking from can be viewed as subtraction. Diverse Learning Needs: Essential Skills:Learning Objectives: M.K.8.1: Define addition as combining groups of objects. M.K.8.2: Define subtraction as separating groups of objects. M.K.8.3: Represent numbers with objects or drawings. M.K.8.4: Separate sets with nine or fewer objects. M.K.8.5: Combine objects to form sets up to nine. Prior Knowledge Skills:Notice same/different and some/all. Subtract one from a set of objects (up to 10 objects). Add one to a set of objects (up to 10 objects). Given a group of objects (ten or less), divide the group into smaller groups in various ways. Given small groups of objects, create larger groups by combining the small groups. Take away objects from a large group to create two smaller groups. Put together two small groups of objects to create a larger group. Establish one-to-one correspondence between numbers and objects when given a picture a drawing or objects. Rote count to ten. Enjoy playing with all kinds of objects. Point to matching or similar objects. Alabama Alternate Achievement Standards AAS Standard: M.AAS.K.8 Demonstrate an understanding of addition as "putting together" or subtraction as "taking from" in everyday activities, limited to 5 objects. Mathematics MA2019 (2019) Grade: K 10. Decompose numbers less than or equal to 10 into pairs of smaller numbers in more than one way, by using concrete objects or drawings, and record each decomposition by a drawing or equation.

Record their solutions using pictures or equations.Teacher Vocabulary:Decompose Equation Knowledge:Students know: "equal to" and the concept of equality meaning "the same as." Addition is putting together numbers and subtraction is taking apart numbers.Skills:Students are able to: Represent quantities physically, pictorially, and symbolically.Understanding:Students understand that: quantities may be named in a variety of ways.
