# Active Lesson Plan

Title: Algebraic Thinking and Operations

Content Area: Mathematics

Teacher Name: Haley Stuart

OVERARCHING GOALS FOR THE LESSON
Students will take what they have learned and apply it to

LESSON OBJECTIVES AND STANDARDS
The SWBAT add numbers using pairs as high as 20 to
demonstrate an understanding of both adding those
numbers and subtracting them.

IMPORTANT CONTENT CONNECTION: Children must have a foundation of adding numbers fluently because it proposes a
foundation for higher lever addition problems but also multiplication.
Learning Objectives and Standards:  2. ATO. 2 Demonstrate fluency with addition

and related subtraction facts through 20.

Add numbers using pairs as high as 20
Demonstrate an understanding by writing down the answer in pairs but also tossing the ball to each other using the amount from the
answer (i.e. If the answer to a problem is 5 then the ball will be tossed to each other 5 times)
 Check for completions on their clipboards – There needs to be a passing rate of 90% so the teacher can test understanding and fluency
