SIOP Lesson Plan Template 2

STANDARDS: 2.1.2.F: Use the inverse relationships between addition and subtraction to
determine unknown quantities to solve problems.

THEME: Math LESSON TOPIC: Fact Families OBJECTIVES: Language: Content:

-understand the concept of fact families utilize materials to make their own fact families work in groups and visit different stations in the classroom to work on fact families discuss the concept of inverse relationships between addition and subtraction (fact families).

-students will understand the meaning of fact family, addend, plus, minus, and equal sign.

LEARNING STRATEGIES: group work, differentiated instruction, station work KEY VOCABULARY: fact family, addend, plus, minus, equal sign MATERIALS: yarn addition sentence necklaces,worksheets, pencil, dice, cards, spinner, hat
with numbers, ducks with numbers.


(Building background) To start off the lesson I will select 6 students to come to the front of the class. I will place a yarn necklace with a piece of laminated paper with either a number (2,3, or 5) or a +, -, or = sign. Then I will place the students with 2, +, 3, =, 5 in a row at the front of the room. I will explain how they already know this is an addition sentence with addends, a plus sign, an equal sign, and the sum. Then I will flip them around so it reads 3+2=5 and explain how it is a similar addition sentence, but the addends are reversed. (connecting prior knowledge) Then I will switch the + with the sign and have the students in this order: 5-2=3, and explain how the same three numbers are used, but now not with addition, with subtraction. I will also make the children line up in the order 5-3=2 and explain the reverse. I will tell them that this is a fact family.


(Language and content objectives, comprehensible input, strategies, interaction, feedback) Students will complete worksheet explained below with a group of other students. ELL students will obtain help from others in their group if needed. I will monitor the students in the groups. I will review what a fact family, addend, plus, minus, and equal sign all are one more time and then I will explain the different stations to the students befor they begin it.

PRACTICE AND APPLICATION: (Meaningful activities, interaction, strategies, practice and application, feedback)

The students will receive a worksheet. The worksheet will have a section across the top that says number 1, number 2, sum, addition fact 1, addition fact 2, subtraction fact 1, and subtraction fact 2. On the left side of the paper will be a column that reads dice, cards, spinner, hat, and ducks. I will then divide the students into 5 groups. The students will have to go to each station and complete the activities to complete their worksheet. The students will spend around 6 minutes at

each station. I will explain what to do at each station and the children will break off into their groups to do the activities. *I will place ELL students in groups seperately so they can get help from their English speaking peers. -At the dice station, the students will roll the dice two times to see what their two numbers are, and then they will find the sum of their numbers, the two addition sentences, and the two subtraction sentence that go with the two numbers. At the cards station, playing cards (#s 210) will be turned upside down on a desk for children to flip over and see what their numbers are, find their sum, then complete the addition and subtraction facts. At the spinner station, I will have a spinner (from the board game of Life) that the children may spin twice to see what their numbers are, their sum, and their addition and subtraction facts are. At the hat station, there will be a hat with papers rolled up in it that have numbers on it (#s 1-10). The students will have to pick two numbers out of the hat to find their numbers, sum, addition and subtraction facts. And finally at the ducks station, there will be rubber ducks with numbers on their bottom (#s 1-10) in a water bin. The students will have to pick up two ducks out of the water bin to find their numbers, sum, addition and subtraction facts.

REVIEW AND ASSESSMENT: (Review objectives and vocabulary, assess learning)

To review, the class will participate in a short math talk. The class will review what a fact family, addend, plus, minus, and equal sign are and then talk about what they did at the different stations and how it helped them in their math class today.


Students may really benefit from group work and I can carry the group work into all of the other subjects when possible.
