Using our Addition with Regrouping Lesson Plan students will be able to add using the properties of addition and regrouping. This lesson also covers strategies for solving word problems using addition and working with addition equations. The incorporation of manipulatives engages and reinforces understanding. Students are also prepared to tackle word problems without key words.
Sample Classroom Procedure / Teacher Instruction
- Display simple addition problems, such as 1 + 2, 3 + 4, etc. Ask the following question: How are adding these numbers different than adding numbers like these: (display) 49 + 9, 87 + 56, etc.?
- Allow for responses and discussion. Introduce regrouping for addition.
- Distribute Addition with Regrouping content pages. Emphasize that it is incorrect to write a two-digit number below the one’s place. Read and review the information with the students. Use the additional resources to enhance understanding.
- Distribute the activity pages. Read and review the instructions. Pair the students. Students will manipulate the cut-outs to create addition problems and then write them into the squares given. (Demonstrate if necessary.) Circulate through the room to check on students’ understanding.
- Once completed, each pair of students may exchange their work with another student pair for correction. For discrepancies, the teacher may display the specific problem and ask the class to solve.
- Distribute practice page. Check and review the students’ responses.
- Distribute the homework page. Review the instructions. The next day, check and review the students’ responses. Explain to students that sometimes word problems may not have key words, as with question 9.
- In closing, display an extra-long addition problem with at least 10 digits, ask students to solve. Remind students to take their time.
- Allow time to complete, ask several students to share the sum.
