###
Understanding the Equal Sign and Balancing Equations

Students will apply addition strategies as they complete four different station rotations to help understand that the equal sign represents a relationship where the expressions on each side of the equal sign represents the same value.

###
It’s All About the Bend, No Breaking

Students will experiment with choosing tools to measure around a previously created pet habitat in preparation for choosing appropriately sized food bowls. Students will use a graphic organizer to record tools chosen and to explain why those tools were or were not a good choice for continuous measurement.

###
Balancing Act

**Students use a pan balance model and manipulatives to identify a total that balances two parts. The use of the pan balance will help to develop the concept of equality. Students will develop the language of equality by reading and identifying the following expressions; balances, is the same as, is equal to, and equa l before the symbol for equality is introduced. Students will identify an unknown part in a balance situation. Students will communicate ideas, explain, and justify how they solved problems.**

###
Math Problem Solving CAN DRIVE good problem solvers!: 1st grade CAN Drive

**Students will help the principal collect cans for a can food drive. The students will be able to solve math word problems using the UPS✓ (UNDERSTAND what the problem is asking, make a PLAN, SOLVE the problem, and then CHECK to see if the answer makes sense) song/strategy, draw to show their work, and write a number sentence to go with their problem. **

###
Splashing into Addition and Subtraction Problem Situations

**In learning stations, students will work independently and collaboratively to solve real-world mathematical problems. **

###
Comparing and Representing Teen Numbers

** The students will choose a cup with manipulatives and build that number using a tool of choice. The students will compare their number with a shoulder partner using math language or comparative language and will write in their math journal using a sentence stem and drawing their justification.**

###
Going Beyond with Number Bonds

Students will use number bonds to compose and decompose numbers to 10.

###
The Shapes Around Us
