Lesson Plan Format and ExampleUnit Title: Represent and Compare Numbers to 100/Facts to 12/Data 2 nd Nine WeeksTopic Title: Number Representations (Intro to 100)Name of Lesson: Missing Numbers Standards:M1N1.d Understand the magnitude and order of numbers up to 100 by making ordered sequences and representing them on a number line This is an example ofEssential Question(s):Unit: What can I do with numbers? one of the lessonsLesson questions: How can I identify missing numbers using a hundred chart? offered. It covers allAssessment Description/Performance Task:Constructed response Informal assessment aspects of lesson plans.Performance task Selected responseBrief Description: Observe students playing ―Missing Numbers‖ during center time. Teacher notes how students determine which numbers aremissing. (See suggestions in Summary By the Learner.)Procedures Topic Essential Questions Hook/Activator: Display a hundreds chart and ask students to share what they know about it. Do they recognize any patterns? Can they find selected numbers on the chart? Are students counting by ones, search randomly or do they have a general idea of where the number will be? Teaching Strategy: Ask students to shut their eyes. Remove the cards 22, 24, 26, 28 and 30 from the Hundred Chart (or cover them up with a post-it or small square of paper). Ask students to think but not to say out loud the number you are going to select. Point to one of Standards Assessments the missing numbers. Give students time to think and then ask several students to tell what numbers are missing and how they know. Ask for others to share different ways of how they know which numbers are missing. For instance, the missing number is 24 because it comes after 23. As each missing number is identified replace the correct number card. Summary by the Learner: Students play ―Missing Numbers‖ in pairs during center time. Observe students playing the game and note how students determine which number is missing. Are they counting from one? From some other number? Are the numbers before and after Hook Procedures used in any way? Are patterns identified? Is there more than one way to find a number? Is the structure of the 100 chart used – using rows or columns to find the missing number? What range of numbers are students comfortable with—less than 50, more than 50? Closing DifferentiationDifferentiation: Vocabulary More capable: Use additional game boards with missing numbers (B p. 200 or C p. 201) or use a Hundreds chart starting with 201 and ending with 300. Less capable: Students may need additional exposure in using a Hundred Chart and may need to see and hear strategies of other students for finding numbers.For this Lesson: Hundred Chart with removable numbers (Pocket chart works well) or post-it notes/small squares of paper to cover numbers on a hundred chart THESE ARE VERY What’s Missing? pages A, B, C P. 199 – 201 (optional) HELPFUL IN PLANNING!!!!!!!Vocabulary: tens Hundred chart greater ones less than
Where are the lesson plans??? Sometimes you will find a unit that does not contain lesson plans. This is rare but can happen with Picasso. This simply means that a teacher has not submitted lessons for this content or the lesson has not be uploaded yet.
