Sample Classroom Procedure / Teacher Instruction

  1. Begin by explaining to students that addition has several properties.
  2. While reading the content pages, give students additional examples of each property to help them understand the three concepts. Use the additional resources to enhance understanding.
  3. Introduce the notes on each property. Have students practice using each property. Instructors can provide problems or have students volunteer an addition problem to demonstrate the properties. Students can write their answers on whiteboards and hold them up to be checked.
  4. While reading the content pages on fact families, give students additional examples to help them understand how addition and subtraction work together. Use the additional resources to enhance understanding of fact families.
  5. Have students practice using fact families. Instructors can provide problems or have students volunteer a problem to demonstrate knowledge of fact families. Students can write their answers on whiteboards and hold them up to be checked.
  6. Distribute the activity page to students. Hand out dice to each student or pairs of students. This activity can be done individually or with a partner.
  7. Distribute the practice page. Check and review the students’ responses. Have the students check their work with a partner.
  8. Distribute the homework page.
  9. Review the hand gestures for each addition property, and ask students why we use that gesture.
  10. Allow for responses and discussion.
