Lesson Idea Name: Adding and subtracting story problems
Content Area: Math
Grade Level(s): 1st grade

Content Standard Addressed: MGSE1.OA.1 Use addition and subtraction within 20 to solve word
problems involving situations of adding to, taking from, putting together, taking apart, and comparing, with
unknowns in all positions, e.g., by using objects, drawings, and equations with a symbol for the unknown
number to represent the problem.

Universal Design for Learning (UDL): Kahoot is a fun and interactive tool that allows teachers to administer
quizzes, surveys or discussions in the form of a game. Kahoot has several features that supports learning for
all students. Teachers can add pictures/videos, and even lengthen the time per question. Kahoot can be
accessed on mobile devices on both apple and android platforms, they can also be accessed by computer.
Students can join in using a code in order to play in real time. The answer choices on Kahoot come in many
shapes and colors, which can provide students with a sensory experience by touch the screen and selecting
the different colors.

Describe the instructional activities that will occur PRIOR to the SRT activity and how you will introduce
the SRT activity.
Before the start of the SRT activity, a lesson will be taught on addition and subtraction. The lesson will include
objects and visuals to allow students to model the word problems. After students have practiced the content
taught during the lesson, the SRT activity will begin. The SRT activity will be the ticket-out-the-door, as well as
the formative assessment to check for students’ understanding.

Describe the purpose of the SRT activity (check all that apply):
☐ Assess prior knowledge ☐ Anticipatory set (Create interest in a topic) ☒ To illuminate common
misconceptions ☒ Formative assessment of content knowledge (for purpose of differentiation and
mastery for ALL students) ☐ Summative assessment of content knowledge ☐ Test preparation
☐ Survey/Poll ☐ Discussion starter ☐ “Homework” collection ☐ Other (please explain):

Student Response and Assessment Tools
Briefly describe what will happen DURING the SRT activity: During the SRT activity the teacher will
instruct the students to finish as quickly and accurately as they can. The students will be instructed to work on
the SRT activity independently. If needed, the students will have the option to use manipulatives to solve the
word problems. The teacher will read the questions aloud for the student along with the answer choices.
Using their devices, the students will then have 1 minutes per question to submit an answer.
Type of questions/prompts used in this activity (check all that apply):
☒ Multiple choice ☐ Multiple select ☐ True/False ☐ Yes/No
☐ Short open-ended response or fill-in the blank ☐ Longer open-ended response

If you are unable to provide a working sample of your questions, please list them below (8-10):

Right/Wrong answers: Will there be right/wrong answers to these questions?
☒ Yes ☐ No
☐ Mixed (Some will have correct answers, other will not.)
Immediate corrective feedback: Will you pre-select correct answers to some of all of the questions and
display correct response to the class after the SRT activity?
☒ Yes
☐ No
Why or why not?
I will pre-select the correct answers to ensure the game moves smoothly and allow students to see whether
they got the answer right or wrong. Allowing the students to see this helps them determine where they went
wrong in solving a problem.
Describe what will happen AFTER the SRT activity? After the activity, the teacher will review the data to
provide accommodations/differentiation to the content to ensure all students are learning.

How will the data be used? The teacher will be able to collect data from Kahoot on how the class did and use
the data for instruction. The data collected will be used to evaluate students’ understanding of the material.
Using this data, the teacher is able to make accommodations to ensure all students are advancing in their
learning. The data will not be shared; however, students will be familiar with their progress based on how
many questions were answered correctly.
Describe your personal learning goal for this activity. My personal goal is to introduce students to a new way
of learning by implementing technology such as student response technology to make it more accessible for
all students to participate
Reflective Practice: This activity is a great way for students to take control over their own learning. Students
are able to immediately see which questions they got right/wrong. There are many advantages to this activity
such as student engagement. Students are able to participate in the classroom without feeling pressured. This
activity also allows students with specific learning disabilities to participate.
I can extend this lesson by allowing students to create their own questions on Kahoot and sharing them with
the class. The questions can be created individually or in a group.
