Michigan Content Expectations: K.OA.2 Solve addition and subtraction word problems, and add and subtract within 10, e.g., by using objects or drawings to represent the problem. Objective: The student will solve addition word problems (within the range of numbers 1-10) about human needs and will use objects representing physical needs (i.e.: mittens, Linkin-Logs, candy, etc.) as aids to represent the problems, and the student will score 80% on the assessment in order to demonstrate proficiency. (Application) Assessment: Formative: During the stations, the students will write down the answers to their story problems on page two of each of the flip books next to their name. The teacher will be able to grade these and assess student learning from the data. Summative: The students will take a quiz about story problems and needs during the independent practice. They must score 80% on the assessment in order to demonstrate proficiency. If they do not score 80%, the teacher will take the time in a later lesson to do remediation work.

Instructional Procedure: 1. Anticipatory Set: (5 minutes) a. Gather the students all into one big circle and have the following class discussion: b. We have been learning about our many different needs and wants. We have talked about how our wants are the things we would like, but do not have to have in order to survive. We have talked about how our needs can be both physical needs and emotional needs. Remember, our main physical needs are food, shelter, clothing, and safety. Our emotional needs are fun, freedom, power, and belonging. Today, during this math lesson, we are going to talk about how much of each of our needs we need in order to live! c. Can we start with our emotional needs? How much fun does someone need? How much freedom? How much power? How much belonging? d. We cannot count our emotions can we? That is because these are feelings happen in our head and our heart. They are too important to count.
