Essential Question:


How can you add tens?

CC.1.NBT.4 - Add within 100, including adding a two-digit number and a one-digit number, and adding a two-digit
number and a multiple of 10, using concrete models or drawings and strategies based on place value, properties of
operations, and/or the relationship between addition and subtraction; relate the strategy to a written method
and explain the reasoning used. Understand that in adding two-digit numbers, one adds tens and tens, ones and
ones; and sometimes it is necessary to compose a ten.

Daily Routines:
Math Journal Write an addition and subtraction fact. Then write a strategy you could use to solve the fact.
Problem of the Day Basic Facts Add or subtract.
3 + 7 = _____ 11 6 = _____ 13 9 = _____ 4 + 8 = _____


How can you solve 1 + 7?

How did you find the sum?
What would be the sum of 1 ten + 7 tens? Explain.

How can you write 30 + 40 using only tens?
What can you draw for a quick picture of 30 + 40?
How can you find the sum of 30 + 40?
How can you use your quick picture to help you find the sum of 30 + 40?

Independent Work:
Students will complete exercises 1-4 on p. 322. Use problems 3 and 4 as the quick check
In exercise 1, is the sum 6 or 60? Explain.

Differentiated Partner / Small Group Work:

Intervention Group Jaime, Derrick, and students who miss either quick check problem will do the tier 1 Reteach

Activity with Ms. OConnor:

Materials: Numeral Cards 10, 20, 30, 40, 50 and Base-10 Blocks
Show the 20 and 10 cards.
Have students model the numbers with base-ten blocks and draw a quick picture.
How many tens are there in all?
Write 2 tens + 1 ten = 3 tens. Together, count by tens to show that 3 tens are 30.
Choose 2 new cards and repeat
