# Lesson 10

Are There Enough?

## Warm-up: How Many Do You See: Building On (10 minutes)

### Narrative

The purpose of this How Many Do You See is for students to recognize and name small groups of dots and describe how they see them. In the synthesis, students orally describe how they see the dots. Students may notice that the images are the same, with one additional dot.

### Launch

• Groups of 2
• Display the first image.
• “How many dots do you see? How do you see them?”
• 30 seconds: quiet think time

### Activity

• “Use your fingers to show your partner how many dots you see.”
• 30 seconds: partner work time
• “Tell your partner how many dots you see and how you see them.”
• 1 minute: partner discussion
• Record responses.
• Repeat with the second image.

### Student Facing

### Activity Synthesis

• “Did anyone see the dots the same way but would explain it differently?”

## Activity 1: Act It Out: Four Little Speckled Frogs (Part 1) (10 minutes)

### Narrative

The purpose of this activity is for students to be introduced to a new story. Students make sense of and orally explain what the story is about.

MLR8 Discussion Supports. Listen for and clarify any questions about the context.

### Launch

• Groups of 2
• Display and read the story.

### Activity

• “What is the story about?”
• 30 seconds: quiet think time
• Share responses.

### Student Facing

4 little speckled frogs sat on a speckled log,
eating the most delicious bugs. Yum! Yum!
1 jumped into the pool, where it was nice and cool.
Now there are 3 green speckled frogs. Glub! Glub!

### Activity Synthesis

• “We will come back to this story tomorrow and think about what happens in the story and how we can act it out.”

## Activity 2: Are There Enough? (10 minutes)

### Narrative

The purpose of this activity is for students to determine if there are enough pencils and erasers for each student in their group to get one. Students can do this in any way that makes sense to them. The synthesis will focus on determining if there are enough by giving one object to each student in the group.

Engagement: Internalize Self Regulation. Remind students that they want to find out if there will be enough pencils and erasers for each student. Acknowledge that it is okay if someone does not get an item.
Supports accessibility for: Social-Emotional Functioning

• Monitor for student work that can be discussed during the synthesis (picture book pages, pattern block designs, or connecting cube buildings).

Choose a center.

Geoblocks

Connecting Cubes

Pattern Blocks

Picture Books

### Activity Synthesis

• Invite previously selected students to share their work.
• Invite students to share what their partner said about the student work.

## Lesson Synthesis

### Lesson Synthesis

Select 4 students to stand together in the front of the room.

“Today, we figured out if we had enough pencils and erasers for everyone in our group. Now we are going to see if there are enough markers for everyone in this group.”

Give 1 marker to each student in the group. Show one marker remaining in your hand.

“Are there enough markers for everyone in the group? How do you know?” (There are enough. Everyone has one. There is one extra. There are too many.)
