Lesson Plan: Teaching Partners of 10

Grade Level: 1st Grade

Subject: Mathematics

Objective: By the end of the lesson, students will be able to understand and apply the concept of partners of 10.

Materials: - Ten-frame manipulatives - Counters or small objects - Whiteboard or chart paper - Markers or chalk - Number cards (0-10) - Partner of 10 worksheet (printed copies)


  1. Introduction (5 minutes):
    • Begin the lesson by asking students if they know what partners of 10 are.
    • Write the number 10 on the board and explain that partners of 10 are two numbers that, when added together, equal 10.
    • Give a few examples of partners of 10, such as 1 and 9, 2 and 8, 3 and 7, etc.
    • Ask students if they can think of any other pairs of numbers that add up to 10.
  2. Ten-Frame Activity (10 minutes):
    • Distribute ten-frame manipulatives and counters to each student.
    • Explain that they will be using the ten-frames to find partners of 10.
    • Model an example by placing 7 counters on the ten-frame and asking students how many more counters are needed to make 10.
    • Allow students to practice finding partners of 10 using the ten-frames and counters.
    • Circulate the classroom to provide assistance and guidance as needed.
  3. Whole-Class Activity (10 minutes):
    • Write the numbers 0-10 on the board or chart paper.
    • Shuffle the number cards and distribute one card to each student.
    • Instruct students to find their partner of 10 by standing next to the student with the corresponding number card.
    • Once all students have found their partners, ask each pair to share their partner of 10 with the class.
    • Discuss any patterns or observations that emerge from the activity.
  4. Partner of 10 Worksheet (15 minutes):
    • Distribute the partner of 10 worksheet to each student.
    • Explain the instructions and model an example on the board.
    • Allow students to work independently or in pairs to complete the worksheet.
    • Monitor their progress and provide assistance as needed.
  5. Conclusion (5 minutes):
    • Gather the students back together as a whole class.
    • Review the concept of partners of 10 and ask students to share any new insights or observations they made during the lesson.
    • Summarize the key points and remind students to practice finding partners of 10 in their daily lives.
    • End the lesson by praising students for their participation and effort.

Assessment: - Observe students’ participation and engagement during the ten-frame activity and whole-class activity. - Review completed partner of 10 worksheets to assess students’ understanding and application of the concept. - Provide feedback and support to students as needed.
