Kindergarten Subtraction With Single Digit Number Lesson Plan

Topic:Subtraction with single digit number

Objectives & Outcomes

By the end of this lesson, students will be able to subtract single digit numbers up to 100.

Materials

Whiteboard and markers

Calculator

Worksheets with subtraction problems (one per student)

Warm-up

Review the concept of addition by asking the students to solve simple addition problems such as 7 + 5 or 6 + 4.

Ask the students to use a calculator to solve the addition problems.

Then, ask the students to solve the same problems without using a calculator.

Direct Instruction

Introduce the concept of subtraction by explaining that it is the opposite of addition.

Show the students two single-digit numbers, such as 5 and 3, and ask them to solve the problem without a calculator.

Use visual aids (such as blocks or tiles) to help the students understand the concept of subtraction.

For example, if the students are solving 5 - 3, you can use the visual aid to show them that if you take away 3 blocks or tiles, you are left with 2 blocks or tiles left.

Repeat this process with other subtraction problems, such as 6 - 3 and 7 - 2.

Guided Practice

Give the students a set of worksheets with single-digit numbers and ask them to solve the problems without a calculator.

Walk around the room and offer help and guidance to the students as they work.

For example, if a student is struggling to solve the problem 5 - 3, you can help them by showing them how to use the visual aid to show that after taking away 3 blocks or tiles, they are left with 2 blocks or tiles left.

Independent Practice

Provide the students with a set of worksheets with single-digit numbers and ask them to solve the problems without a calculator.

Encourage the students to use the visual aid to help them solve the problems.

Prompt the students if they are struggling to solve a problem, but allow them to work through the problems independently.

Closure

Review the concepts learned during the lesson, including adding and subtracting single-digit numbers using a visual aid and using the repeated subtraction method to solve problems.

Ask the students to share any difficulties they encountered during the lesson and how they were able to resolve them.

Assessment

Observe the students during the independent practice activity to assess their understanding of the concepts taught during the lesson.

Collect and review the students' worksheets to assess their ability to apply their knowledge of adding and subtracting single-digit numbers in real-world situations.

Administer a quiz at the end of the lesson to assess the students' understanding of adding and subtracting single-digit numbers.
