1 Essential Question: How do I add two digit numbers?

Activity: Presenting

Discuss the Essential Question

2 Activating Strategy

Have students review their addition math facts by allowing them to go online to do the Arcademic Skill Builder.  Let them do this for 5-10 minutes.

3 Teaching Strategy

Use the Thinking Blocks website to help them understand how to use blocks to add.  Show this on the Smartboard.  Model for them the steps involved-especially when there is regrouping.  I will also pass out base 10 blocks to students.  They can model this on their desks while I do it on the board.  We wll do several examples. 

4 Independent Practice

Activity: Other — independent work at their seats

Then have students do worksheets with two digit addition problems on them.  Walk around the room and monitor what they are doing.  Check their work to make sure they are getting it. 

5 If they get finished early...

If they get finished early with the worksheet and I checked to make sure it is ok, they may get out Ipads and go on the Mathris App. 

6 Wrap-up

When everybody is finished, students will sign into Kahoot!.  I will show a two digit problem on the screen.  They must figure it out at their seats and click the right answer.  The winner/s will get a sticker.
