As an EC teacher I find that most of my students have difficulty when it comes to making mistakes. This lesson is a way to help students realize that making mistakes is okay and that the mistakes we make are always correctable. This activity is partially aligned to depth and breadth of standard NC.Math.1.NBT.1 (it only goes to 20 but can easily be adapted to go to higher numbers) and is not aligned to standard NC.Math.1.OA.1 at all. This lesson has clear learning objectives that are achievable through completion of this resource. It also has clear and sufficient assessment strategies that will accurately measure student progress and mastery of the specified standard. The activity is engaging as it provides opportunities for critical thinking, collaboration and communication as they work with a classmate to find and fix the errors. It is also appropriate for use within a first grade classroom. There are no technological elements in this activity.
