Procedure

The teacher will explain the directions and as a class practice the example problem and enforce the game’s structure. (Directions) (Auditory, Visual, Kinesthetic) (Guided Practice) The students will repeat the directions back to the class and teacher (CFU) The teacher will subdivide the class into two even groups (red and yellow). The students will put on their “counters” in order to identify which color they are, and divide themselves into two single file lines. The teacher will present a math problem on the Smart Board and read it aloud.(Auditory) The students will observe the problem on the Smart Board. (Visual) The teacher will prompt the first group (red counters) to represent the first addend. The students will move to the carpet and identify themselves as the first addend by standing in the designated area on the rug. The red “counter” group will count aloud as the students move to the rug. (Visual, Auditory, and Kinesthetic) The teacher will prompt the second group (yellow counters) to represent the second addend. The students will move to the carpet and identify themselves as the second addend by standing in the designated area on the rug. The yellow “counter” group will then count aloud as the students move to the rug. (Visual, Auditory, and Kinesthetic) The teacher will prompt the students to count off as a whole class to identify the sum. The students will count aloud the classmates on the rug as a class in order to calculate the sum. The teacher will randomly select a student to write the sum on the Smart Board. The student will write the sum on the Smart Board using the interactive pen. The students will (red and yellow group) will then proceed to the back of the line and wait for their next turn to be a “counter”. The teacher will repeat the procedure six times. The teacher will hand out an exit slip and explain the directions. (Directions) (CFU) (Visual and Auditory) (Independent Practice) The students will complete the exit slip and place it in the basket when finished. (CFU) (Visual)
