# 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.
