Weekly Lesson Plans


Blackmon Week 7 of:  Oct. 3-6, 2022  
Math: We will continue  learning about Foundation of Numbers and begin Number Relationships.  These units overlap and will  include place value (ones, tens, hundreds, thousands), multiple number representation using standard form, written word, expanded form and pictorials, even and odd, greater than & less than, identifying coins and their value, as well as basic addition and subtraction. Students will also practice their addition and subtraction math facts using Reflex Math.
Unit 02: Number Relationships :  

  • Composing numbers and making equations

  • Using strategies to solve equations

  • Identifying coins and their worth/value

  • Counting coins and exchanging for coins with equal value

  • Using multiple representations for a number (standard form)


This unit bundles student expectations that address patterns and relationships in numbers, including basic addition and subtraction facts, fact families, odd and even numbers, place value, and the value of coins in a collection.

During this Unit

Students focus on developing mathematical strategies based on patterns and number sense to strengthen their understanding of number relationships and fluency with computations. Students explore number relationships in strategies based on place value and properties of operations in order to develop automaticity in the recall of basic addition and subtraction facts, meaning executing the fact with speed and accuracy with little or no conscious effort. Students use fact family relationships to solve problems with an unknown in any position, such as start unknown, change unknown, and result unknown problems. Students also mentally calculate sums and differences for numbers using place value as they explore “10/100 more/less” relationships. Students discover patterns in odd and even numbers through the pairing of objects and determining if the number can be paired without leftovers. Students use skip counting patterns and relationships between the values of coins to determine the value of a collection of like or mixed coins up to one dollar. Students extend their representation of the value of coins to include either the cent symbol notation or the dollar sign and decimal point notation.

Lesson 1:
Explicit Number teaching by exploring flexible methods and models to solve and represent addition and subtraction equations 
using symbols and correct vocabulary terms.
Number teaching through Comparing Numbers:greater than less than equal to.

Lesson 2:
Explicit Number teaching by discussing ways to count, collect, exchange, and make change for coins. Point out that learning to skip count helps with counting money.

Lesson 3:
Explicit Number teaching by naming the biggest number and counting on.

Lesson 4: 
Simple addition & subtraction on Reflex Math
Discuss NWEA goals 

No School this Friday nor Monday.
