## Students are following carpet rules.

1. Read the word problem. 2. Find my clue words to tell me if Im adding or subtracting. 3. Write my number sentence using the information from the word problem. 4. Find the answer!
Put up a new anchor chart with two I Do problems to model how to solve subtraction word problems. Problem #1: Miss Robertson had 5 apples. She gave 2 apples away. How many apples does she have left?

## Students are being coldcalled to answer questions.

When I say go, you are going to take a sheet from the center of your table, and write your name and date at the top. Then, you will put your pencil at the top of your desk and sit in listening position. Read aloud the first story problem. When I say go, grab your pencil and begin working on the first story problem. When you are finished, put your pencil back at the top of your desk, and put your head down. Make sure you are following the steps from our anchor chart! Go!
I will circulate to look for students who need extra support.

Students take a paper from the middle of their table and begin working at a level 0.

When students finish with first problem, read aloud the second problem.

When I say go, grab your pencil and begin working on the second story problem. When you are finished, put your pencil back at the top of your desk, and put your head down. Make sure you are following the steps from our anchor chart! Go!
When all students are finished with the You Do, go over the problems together as a class. Exit Ticket (aligned to lesson objective) or assessment: (3 minutes)

Exit ticket will be copied on the back of the You Do. There is one subtraction word problem. Read the problem to them and then set the timer for 3 minutes. You are going to work all by yourself to complete your exit ticket. If you want, you can cover up your work so others cant see. Im going to read the problem, and then when I say go, you will grab your pencil and begin working at a level 0. When you are finished, turn your paper over and you can play a math tub game with your elbow partner.
