Forward Plan for Mathematics: Number, Money, and Measure

Topic: Addition to 10

Desired Outcome: I use practical materials and can ‘count on and back’ to help me understand addition and subtraction, recording my ideas and solutions in different ways.

Suitable for Early Level (Scottish Curriculum)

Week 1: - Introduction to addition: Introduce the concept of addition using concrete materials such as counters, cubes, or toys. - Counting on: Teach students how to count on from a given number using practical materials. Practice counting on from numbers 1 to 5. - Recording addition: Introduce the use of symbols (+) and (=) to record addition. Model recording addition sentences using practical examples.

Week 2: - Counting back: Teach students how to count back from a given number using practical materials. Practice counting back from numbers 1 to 5. - Addition within 5: Provide various addition problems within 5 using concrete materials. Encourage students to count on or back to find the sum. - Recording addition: Continue practicing recording addition sentences using symbols (+) and (=). Encourage students to record their own addition sentences.

Week 3: - Addition within 10: Introduce addition problems within 10 using concrete materials. Encourage students to count on or back to find the sum. - Problem-solving: Present real-life scenarios where addition is required, such as counting objects or adding money. Encourage students to use practical materials and count on or back to find the solution. - Recording addition: Provide opportunities for students to record their addition sentences using symbols (+) and (=). Encourage them to use different ways to record their solutions, such as drawings or number sentences.

Week 4: - Consolidation: Review addition within 10 using practical materials. Provide a variety of addition problems for students to solve independently or in pairs. - Problem-solving: Present more complex addition problems within 10, involving larger numbers or multiple addends. Encourage students to use their counting on or back skills to find the solution. - Recording addition: Continue practicing recording addition sentences using symbols (+) and (=). Encourage students to explain their thinking and solutions verbally or in writing.

Assessment: - Observe students during practical activities to assess their ability to count on and back using concrete materials. - Review students’ recorded addition sentences to assess their understanding of addition within 10. - Provide opportunities for students to explain their thinking and solutions to assess their ability to communicate their understanding of addition.

Note: This forward plan can be adapted and modified based on the specific needs and abilities of the students in your class.
