# Addition Lesson Plan for Kindergarten Students

### Objectives & Outcomes

• By the end of this lesson, students will be able to add quantities up to 10 using concrete objects.

### Materials

• Set of concrete objects (such as blocks, pom-poms, buttons, etc.)
• Whiteboard and markers

### Warm-up

• Review the concept of adding by using concrete objects. Ask the students to raise their hand if they can add two numbers together. Then, ask them to give an example of a problem they could solve with addition.
• Show the students a set of concrete objects and ask them to make a pile of them equal to a target number.##

### Direct Instruction

• Introduce the concept of addition using concrete objects. Explain that when we add two numbers together, we are trying to make a pile of objects that is equal to a target number.
• Show the students two sets of concrete objects and have them add the numbers together to make a pile of objects that is equal to a target number.

### Guided Practice

• Demonstrate how to add two numbers together using concrete objects. Have students practice with your guidance.

### Independent Practice

• Have students work in pairs to add quantities up to 10 using concrete objects. Encourage them to explain their reasoning to their partner.

### Closure

• Have students share their results with the class and explain how they solved the problems.
• Review the concept of adding quantities up to 10 and the importance of being accurate.

### Assessment

• Observe students during the independent practice activity and provide feedback on their addition skills.
• Evaluate students' written work to assess their understanding of adding quantities up to 10.
