Jennifer De Len
Number and Operations in Base Ten
Use place value understanding and properties of operations to perform multi-digit arithmetic.
2. Fluently add and subtract within 1000 using startegies and algorithms based on place value,
properties of operations, and/or the relationship between addition and subtraction.
Language Standard K-5
Conventions of Standard English
1. Demonstrate command of the conventions of standard English grammar and usage when writing or
Writing Standards 3-5
Production and Distribution of Writing
4. With guidance and support from adults, produce writing in which the development and organization
are appropriate to task and purpose.
I. Description of Content & Content Type (Fact, Procedure, Concept, Principle): Students will
associate a number to a money amount. (Concept)
II. Learning Outcome: Students will relate decimal notation and adding money amounts.
III. Curriculum Connection (How lesson fits into larger unit sequence): The previous lesson was
about decimals and place value. Tomorrow's lesson introduces subtracting money amounts.

IV. Instruction
A. Engagement (Motivational Activity): Students enter the classroom to find a ready made
school supply store. Class will discuss what items they see, choose two items from the store
shelves, then they will proceed to the their desks to add the total cost of their two items.
Students will be asked, "When you selected the 2 items, what things did you consider?",
"What do you think you'll be doing with these items?"

B. Instructional Sequence (Teaching Methodology):

Step #1: Sharing items and totals with a partner.
a. "Show me what you picked and what your total is?"
b. Teacher listens to students responses.
Step #2: Numbers line up and the two digits right of the decimal point MUST also line
a. An example problem is put on the front board ($20.00 + $0.99). A class discussion will help
come up with a way to add these two items. What can we do to make this problem easier?,
What will happen if we take away the decimal points? When we add these two numbers
together (calculator $20.00 and a pencil $0.99) without the decimal point, 2000 + 99, we get
2099 or $20 + $0.99 = $20.99." "Now try to add your amounts again, but this time, use this

b. Students are asked to share with a partner their total before this approach and their total
using this approach. "Did you get the same total?" "If not, what do you think you did wrong?"
Step #3: Solving problems.
a. Students are asked to write down the following example problems and solutions in their
math journal.
Problem 1. Post-it pack + pen = $0.75 + $0.50 = ?
Problem 2. Markers + Eraser = $2.00 + $0.35 = ?
Problem 3. Pencil + Graph paper = $0.65 + $1. 25 = ?
b. Teacher will walk around and check students' work for comprehension.
Step #4: Check for understanding.
a. One student will be asked to come up to the front, show his work and write down his
answer. (Repeat 2x)
b. Students are asked to get into pairs and share their answers. Students are asked to raise their
hands if they have a different answer. "Why do you disagree?" "What do you suggest we do to
get the right total?" "Is there another way we could solve this problem?"
Step #5: Reflection
a. Students are asked to write what they learned in their math journal.
b. Teacher shares "what I know, what I want to know, and what I learned" chart.
C. Application Activity: Students complete journal entry (step #5).
D. Materials & Resources:
1. Graph Paper (3 packs)
2. Calculator (2)
3. Pen(5)
4. Pencil (7)
5. Markers (2 packs)
6. Post- it notes (8)
7. Eraser (3)
V. Assessment Strategies:
Formative:See step# 2, 3, 4
Summative: See step #5
VI. Accommodations for Individual Learners:
- Struggling students will sit next to teacher.
ELL Students:
- Encouraged to talk in pairs( proficient English learner with ELL)
- Vocabulary word chart (Dollar sign ($), decimal point, total amount) will be placed on front board.
- Prior to lesson, students will receive a price list of all the items.

VII. Homework: None
