Lesson #: 1/5 Date and Time of Lesson: 9/30/13 10:00AM

Learning Objective: Students will use strategies to subtract mentally. Alignment with Standards: 2.NBT2 Fluently add and subtract with 1,000 using strategies and algorithms based on place value, properties of operations, and/or the relationship between addition and subtraction. EEDA Standard Teacher candidates will implement learning strategies that promote cooperation.

Developmental Appropriateness: It is necessary for students to learn the connection between addition and subtraction. The students have prior knowledge of addition up to adding four digit numbers. The goal is for the students to be able to connect addition and subtraction. By the end of the lesson, the student need to be able to subtract single digit numbers mental in preparation of subtracting two digit numbers. I have seven students who are labeled with special needs and will require extra assistance. There are seven students with higher levels of thinking and will require challenging problems since they will most likely finish their classwork the quickest. In previous grades, students used operations and algebraic thinking and number and operations in base ten in their study of subtraction. Assessment(s) of the Objectives: Pre-assessment: Students will complete an I Am Ready worksheet to evaluate each students prior knowledge of subtraction. During Assessment: Teacher observation during classroom instruction and discussion. Post Assessment: Students will complete a homework page from My Math workbook that covers one digit subtraction.

Columbus, OH: McGraw-Hill Education DOI: connectED.mcgraw-hill.com Activity Analysis: The first activity I plan to do during this lesson is having the student work with base-ten blocks to form a fixed number given to them. This activity is a review of place value and how to use base-ten blocks to form a set number. This activity is very good for my kinetic and visual learners. I have 20 total kinetic and visual learners and this provides an opportunity to do math in a hands on approach. The SMARTboard was used during this activity to provide the problem in a visual matter.

The second activity I will do is independent work with solving ten math problems and responding in the students individual math notebooks. This activity is a way for the students to independently work and also a way for me to see how they are able to subtract simple mental problems. I displayed the math problems on the SMARTboard so each child would be able to see what problems they had to solve. This meets all of my accommodations for my special needs children because I also read every problem aloud.

After the students respond, the teacher will write on the SMARTboard a. Almost and about- tell us to round and/or estimate The students will be instructed to please write down this definition in your math notebook and then clear your desk The teacher will then write on the SMARTboard the problem: a. To celebrate Arbor Day, Britas school district planted trees. The high school students planted 1,536 trees. The elementary students planted 1,380 trees. About how many more trees did the high school students plant? The teacher will reinforce the word about a. How do you think we will solve this problem? What does that word about tell us again? b. Lets set up a strategy to solving this problem! The teacher will guide the students through a four step strategy as following: a. Step one What facts do you know? i. On the SMARTboard, the high school students planted 1,536 trees. ii. On the SMARTboard, the elementary students planted 1,380 trees. iii. On the SMARTboard, High School students planted the most with 1,536. b. Step two Plan i. On the SMARTboard, about equals estimate c. Step three Solve i. Round each number to the nearest hundred place. ii. On the SMARTboard: 1,536-> 1,500 iii. On the SMARTboard: 1,380 -> 1,400 iv. On the SMARTboard: Now we must subtract 1,500- 1,400= 100. So the high school planted 100 more trees than the elementary school. d. Step four Check i. Does the answer make sense? Explain? 1. On the SMARTboard, To check, we add 1,400 + 100 = 1,500. 2. Do you understand that you look back at the problem to make sure the answer fits the facts given? We take our answer to the subtraction problem and add it to the smallest value number in the subtraction sentence. Then we make sure it adds to be the exact answer of the larger number that we subtracted from.

The teacher will call back the five students who have accommodations to her crescent table. a. While at the table, the students will be given an expo marker, white board and eraser. b. We will go through the problem aloud and they will solve the problem on their whiteboard. 11. The teacher will call all of the students back to their desk. a. Students please return to your desk b. Can someone tell me if we needed to estimate or find the exact answer on this problem on page 146? i. Students are given the opportunity to answer and explain their reasoning. c. Does anyone have any questions? 12. The teacher will past out the Check My Progress Paper to be completed. a. Students this is a worksheet that I am going to review and check to see how you are grasping the last couple lessons in subtraction. Please do your best and I will collect them when you are finished 13. After the students have finished their worksheet, the teacher will direct them into independent reading time. References: Carter, Ph.D, J., Cuevas, Ph.D, G., Day, Ph.D, R., & Malloy Ph.D, C. (2013). Mcgraw-hill my math grade 3 volume 1 teacher edition. Columbus, OH: McGraw-Hill Education DOI: connectED.mcgraw-hill.com Activity Analysis: One of the activities I taught was the strategy of the four steps. The four step plan taught the students to use four steps in all problem solving exercise. It is a way to organize the data, help determine what do to next and how to go about it. This is very important for the students to use so they can identify whether or not to estimate. The four-step plan was discussed with the students and taught out loud. This should accommodate for my students who cannot read and my two ESOL students. The SMARTboard was used through out the lesson to show the students the problems and all four-steps. Another activity I did was teaching the importance of the forth step, which is checking to see if the answer is reasonable. This helps the students ask themselves if the answer makes

sense with what they know about the world and does it fit the information given in the problem. A couple of my students are fast learners who sometimes do not slow down to check their work. To avoid making small errors that cause the answer to be incorrect, this makes the students double-check their work for accuracy. I used the SMARTboard while teaching the fourth step. This allowed the students to see the example and how I checked my answer in my head and on the board.

Learning Objective: At the end of this lesson, students will be able to find the difference to a subtraction problem by regrouping. Alignment with Standards: 3.NBT2 Fluently add and subtract with 1,000 using strategies and algorithms based on place value, properties of operations, and/or the relationship between addition and subtraction. SCCA: Descriptions of appropriate student behavior

Developmental Appropriateness: This objective is appropriate for this class because they have prior knowledge of base-ten blocks and regrouping. This provides an opportunity for the students to take their knowledge of base-ten blocks and regrouping to learn how to subtract larger numbers than they mental subtraction skills know. This class has over half the class as kinesthetic learners; this is an opportunity for those learners to use their hands and movements to learn how to subtract more complex numbers. Assessment(s) of the Objectives: Pre-assessment: Teacher observation of students subtracting using base-ten blocks at the beginning of the lesson. During Assessment: Teacher observations during the lesson on how the student is contributing to the group activity in regrouping and finding the difference. Also the students will complete independently pages 153-154. The teacher will review this work.

Mcgraw-hill my math grade 3 volume 1 teacher edition. Columbus, OH: McGraw-Hill Education DOI: connectED.mcgraw-hill.com Activity Analysis: The first activity that I did was review of how to regroup or exchange base-ten blocks. This is a review from earlier this year and also was a way to introduce the lesson. I used this opportunity to explain what regroup means. Regroup is apart of their vocabulary, which will be tested at the end of the unit. During this lesson, I gave them to opportunity to make the connection between regroup and exchange. Regrouping was our main objective during this lesson. This is a basic skill to help teaching subtraction. This was a good way to incorporate hands on learning that supports my kinesthetic and visual learners. The first activity did not use technology because I wanted to see if the students could make the connection of place value without seeing it wrote on the SMARTboard. The second activity was having the students work in groups to find the difference of five problems. This was a way for the students to use base-ten blocks to regroup and exchange. This was using hands on activity to teach subtraction. This was great for my kinesthetic learners to be able to subtract using their hands and minds. This was great for them to make the connection between place value and subtraction. I used the SMARTboard to display the five problems the students must find the difference of. The SMARTboard is a great way to keep the kids active and on task.

Mcgraw-hill my math grade 3 volume 1 teacher edition. Columbus, OH: McGraw-Hill Education DOI: connectED.mcgraw-hill.com Activity Analysis: The first activity I am going to use is the pre-assessment of morning work. The preassessment will determine where the students are ranged in preparation of subtracting threedigit numbers. This will help in understanding the students prior knowledge of subtraction and regrouping. If a student shows they are aware of regrouping in their pre-assessment, then it will help with how to remind them of how to regroup during subtraction of three-digit numbers as in addition. I have many students on different academic levels. Having seven students in extra resources classes and having seven students in challenging courses due to high-test scores, I need to be more aware of where the whole class is on a pre-assessment level. This will help on whom to call for reinforcement of the lesson. Technology will be used for displaying they have morning work. The SMARTboard will have their assignments typed for display. The second activity is the hands on activity of using the white boards to subtract threedigit numbers. The students will use the whiteboards to subtract during the lessons. This helps

the teacher know if the students are taking the correct steps in regrouping. This also is a great activity for my ten kinesthetic learners because it involves some type of movement. The display of how to work the problem will also help my ten visual learners. Technology used will be the SMARTboard for display of the problems to answer and how to answer the three digit problems.

Accommodations: Lucas:

Lucas will receive preferential seating close to the teacher during instruction due to learning problems. This will be the responsibility of the regular classroom teacher. Lucas should be asked to repeat or rephrase directions to be sure that he was attending. This will be the responsibility of the regular classroom teacher. Due to his problems with attention, spelling, and staying on task, copying and taking notes quickly and legibly in a reasonable amount of time, Lucas will be provided with copies of notes or study sheets. (These can be copies of the teacher's notes or study sheets or copies of another student whose writing is legible.) Copying notes for the student will be the responsibility of the regular classroom teacher. However, she can ask for assistance from the special education teacher if it is a problem for her. Due to problems recalling how to spell sight words and with spelling words phonetically, Lucas will be allowed to use the 'Bad Speller's Dictionary' on a daily basis in all curriculum areas. The special education teacher will provide this dictionary to keep in the regular education teacher's classroom. The regular education teacher will be responsible for offering it to the student during writing assignments. Due to problems with comprehension, Lucas will be allowed to participate in the special Accelerated Reader activity if he meets him AR goal in his ZPD and his Accelerated Reader accuracy rate is 80% or higher. The regular education teacher, special education teacher, and media specialist will monitor this through the weekly AR reports.

Columbus, OH: McGraw-Hill Education DOI: connectED.mcgraw-hill.com Fincher, J., & O'Malley, K. (2003). Testing miss malarkey . Walker & Company. Activity Analysis: The first activity I did was read the book, Testing Miss Malarkey. This book is a funny book about how students dont need to worry about test and try their best. The book was a great way to calm the students nerves down before administrating a chapter test. I have students who deal with emotional problems and I want to set a calm atmosphere so they have no need to be upset before taking a test. I did not use technology during this activity because I wanted the kids to focus only on my voice and the book. The second activity I did was giving positive and direct instructions. This allows the students to know what they are about to do and produces a good atmosphere to work in. This also helps the students know my expectations during this test administration. Due to many academic low students in the class, I want to make sure the students know they are smart and can do this test to their best. I only expect their best and they now this. I did you the SMARTboard to write down further instructions after they complete the test. This keeps the environment quiet.
