Addition Lesson

Audience: Kindergarteners

Lesson Context & Purpose:

This mini-lesson would be included in a math lesson that talks about different ways and strategies to add single digit numbers, such as using your fingers, number lines, and the dot method.

How can screencast assist you with the lesson or communicate your goal?

Screencast allows easy access for teachers to give visuals in their lesson while also narrating. These videos are easily accessible, and could be sped up or slowed down, depending on the student’s skill level. Parents also have the accessibility to pull up these videos to give their child a refresher when practicing addition problems or finishing up their homework.

  1. Hi Jenny,

    I love how clear and well made each of your videos are. I am sure kindergarteners would have no problem understanding and being able to follow this lesson! I like the way you showed multiple methods to solving. I want to do something like this in my math class.

  2. Great idea for showcasing screencast. The videos are uncluttered – just white board, fingers and voice. So K’s can easily focus on the learning. The videos are well planned and rehearsed. Your voice is clear and warm.

    You are wise to make this as 3 separate videos (instead of all 3 techniques in one longer one). By being separate students can clearly focus in on each technique. And they can easily compare how different methods yield the same results.

    Kudos to your thinking and execution. Very powerful learning because it is very focused on the essentials.

  3. I like that you split up the problems into 3 separate videos! Seems like a good way to keep the information well organized for the little ones! I always used to count on my fingers as a kid, so nice job illustrating that here!

  4. Hi Jenny!

    These are very great videos sharing with students and/or parents how to use simple techniques when adding two numbers! I found myself calm, relaxed and ready to follow along as I listened to you explain. I can imagine kindergarteners following this lesson with ease as the videos are easy to understand and short enough where students do not lose focus.
