Lesson 9

Addition With a Ten

Lesson Purpose

The purpose of this lesson is for students to deepen their understanding that teen numbers are composed of a ten and some ones, and to find the value that makes an addition equation true when one addend is 10.

Lesson Narrative

This lesson builds on the previous lesson in which students composed teen numbers using a ten and some ones. Students move from using connecting cube towers to filled-in 10-frames to represent teen numbers. Students also relate their composition work and the relationship between addition and subtraction to find values that make equations true.

Students continue using double 10-frames throughout the unit. Consider making copies on card stock so they can be used repeatedly.

Teacher Reflection Questions

What methods are students using when they build teen numbers: concrete objects on a 10-frame, drawings, numbers? How do these methods reflect their developing understanding of the unit ten?
