1. Topic-
Understanding 2-Digit Number Value
2. Content-
Less than, greater than, or equal to; Understanding place value;
3. Goals: Aims/Outcomes-
1.Reviewing less than, greater than, or equal to with the 1st grade students.
2.Practicing how to read words to make numbers.
3.Computing words into equations using tens and one chart.
4. Objectives-
1.Students should understand that when they say less than they mean that the first number is smaller than the second number, that when they say greater than they mean that the first number is greater than the second number, and that when they say equal to it means that both numbers are equal to each other.
2.Students should gain confidence and familiarity with numbers by showing them numbers with numbers and with words. For example, they need to know what 1 ten and 26 ones equals --> 36.
3.Students will understand how to use the ten and ones chart to help them solve a problem.
5. Materials and Aids-
White board.
Elmo/document camera.
6. Procedures/Methods-

A. Introduction-

1.This is a continuing lesson from previous days.
2.The students have been learning different skills and practices to help them understand less than, greater than, or equal to. 3.In addition to this, the students have been working on their understanding of the place value of different numbers (whether the numbers are given or are written in words).
4.This lesson is the lesson before an assessment, therefore it will check for understanding and test the students to make sure they are confident in the material.

B. Development-

1.Teacher will first put a problem on the white board, then she will work with all of the students to figure out how to solve the problem.
2.The teacher will go over each type of question a few times that will be on the upcoming worksheet, so that the students can see examples of the equations they are going to be solving.

C. Practice-

1.3.Teacher will have students help her out and come up to the white board to do parts of the problem. The teacher will make sure that everyone seems to be up-to-date, comfortable, and confident with the material.
2.Students will need to give valid and detailed explanations on their answers because if they are able to explain it well, it means that they have a deep understanding of the material.

D. Independent Practice-

1.Students will be given two worksheets. One worksheet will focus on less than, greater than, or equal to. The other worksheet will deal with the ten/one frames and reviewing numbers through numbers themselves and through words.
2.Teacher and helpers will be walking around the classroom assessing the students by probing questions and helping the students who need help.
3.If students are done early, they may go and "coach" someone who may need help. By having the students help each other and learn from each other there are a lot of beneficial things happening: it is building a trusting relationship between the two students, strengthening the classroom community, it is helping the struggling student by receiving help from his peers to help gain an understanding, and it is helping the "coach" because by explaining to the struggling student what they have to do or why they have to do something, that student is gaining a deeper knowledge and understanding of the material.

Checking for understanding-

After the students finish their packets, the teacher will bring the students to the rug to debrief and check for understanding. She will ask the students how they feel about the math problems and what they find hard and what they find easy. After finding out what the students are struggling in, the teacher will then make up a few more problems from that reflect on what they need more help with. The teacher will make sure that all the students are comfortable and confident so that they will do well on their assessment.
7. Evaluation-
1.Teacher will ask the students questions in the beginning, middle, and end of the lesson to gauge the understanding of each of the students.
2.The teacher will also collect the worksheets that they did in class so that she can see how they are all doing.
