## Topic: Basic addition of money

### Objectives & Outcomes

• Students will be able to add two single digits together using regrouping.

### Materials:

• Play money (or real money if possible)
• Desktops or hardboards
• Markers or crayons

### Warm-up

• Review the concept of adding single digits together. Ask students to give examples of what they would do if they were adding

### two numbers together, such as 7 + 4.

• Have students role-play a situation where they have to add two numbers together. Have them act out the exchange, with one student playing the role of the person doing the adding and the other playing the role of the person being asked to add the numbers.

### Direct Instruction

• Introduce the concept of adding money. Explain that money is made up of small units called cents, and that cents can be added together to make larger amounts.
• Show students a few different types of coins and bills and have them identify the values of each.
• Demonstrate how to add money using the 5-part approach:
• Look at the first two numbers: Add the digits in the ones place.
• If the digit in the ones place is the same, add the digits in the tens place.
• If the digit in the ones place is different, make a zero in the tens place and carry the digit in the ones place to the next place to the left.
• Look at the second two numbers: Add the digits in the tens place.
• If the digit in the tens place is the same, add the digits in the hundreds place.
• If the digit in the tens place is different, make a zero in the hundreds place and carry the digit in the tens place to the next place to the left.
• Look at the third number: Add the digits in the hundreds place.
• If the digit in the hundreds place is the same, add the digits in the thousands place.
• If the digit in the hundreds place is different, make a zero in the thousands place and carry the digit in the hundreds place to the next place to the left.
• Demonstrate how to complete the addition using the 5-part approach with a few sample problems.

### Guided Practice:

• Provide students with a worksheet with several problems involving the addition of money.
• Have students work in pairs to complete the problems using the 5-part approach.
• Walk around the room to assist students as needed.
• Have students place their answers on the line next to the problem.

### Independent Practice:

• Provide students with a set of problems involving the addition of money.
• Have students work independently to solve the problems using the 5-part approach.
• Encourage students to check their answers with a partner if needed.

### Closure

• Review the concept of adding money together in different combinations.
• Ask students to share any challenges they faced during the independent practice or any insights they gained.

• Thank the students for their participation and effort.

### Assessment

• Observe students during the independent practice and note their use of the 5-part approach.
