# Education Standards

# Making sets of 10

# Reflection for Unit Oh the Feet You'll Meet Shoes

# GEDB Oh the Feet You'll Meet-Shoes: Counting Shoes and Reflection (Lesson 5 of 5)

## Overview

This lesson reviews the concepts of counting beyond 100 by counting by 10's with tally marks. The shoe collection associated with it began in lesson 2. This lesson also allots time for students to count all the shoes around the school with the teacher's help and to take action in the last step of the shoe collection to help others in the world by bagging up the shoes for transport. The action taken by the students produced a large number of shoes to donate. The final part of this lesson and unit is to complete a reflection assessment.

This lesson was developed by James Agner as part of their completion of the North Carolina Global Educator Digital Badge program. This lesson plan has been vetted at the local and state level for standards alignment, Global Education focus, and content accuracy.

# Lesson Plan

**Description**

This lesson reviews the concepts of counting beyond 100 by counting by 10's with tally marks. The shoe collection associated with it began in lesson 2. This lesson also allots time for students to count all the shoes around the school with the teacher's help and to take action in the last step of the shoe collection to help others in the world by bagging up the shoes for transport. The action taken by the students produced a large number of shoes to donate. The final part of this lesson and unit is to complete a reflection assessment.

**Content**

**Student Engagement/Motivation**

The teacher will ask the class to estimate the total number of shoes and each student will write the student's name and estimate on the board to compare with the actual total that is revealed at the end of the lesson. The teacher will ask what the students think is the fastest time anyone has got on the "100 Hunt" game on finding a number. The teacher will point out that with the shoe collection, the larger number represents a success, but with the 100 Hunt game, the smallest number shows success. The teacher will ask the students how many people will need to be helped for the shoe collection to be successful. The teacher will tell a story of a boy and the starfish. A huge amount of starfish were washed onto the beach. A man walked up and saw a small boy picking up starfish and throwing the starfish back into the ocean to save the starfish from drying out. The man tried to explain that there were so many starfish out on the beach that the little boy should stop because all the effort really could not make a difference. The boy picked up another starfish and threw the starfish back into the ocean anyway and said that the effort made a difference to that starfish. The teacher will remind the class that as long as we can help at least one person then the shoe collection was worth the effort.

**Learning Targets and Criteria for Success**

I can group ten objects together and represent it with a ten.

I will circle all the sets of 10 dots and write the number 10 inside each circle.

I can take a given number and add 10 to it.

I will play the 100 Hunt game and find the given number plus 10 in 5 seconds or less 3 times.

I can use tally marks to count by tens.

I will make dots for every 1, a tally mark for every 10 (a ten stick), and a square for every 100, to count beyond 100.

**Supplies/Resources**

"100 Hunt" game on the internet, see website link

Smartboard to play the 100 Hunt game

Computers, laptops, tablets to play the 100 Hunt game

Whiteboards and markers for each student

Making Sets of 10 worksheet

Reflection Assessment

**Learning Tasks and Practice**

The teacher will do the student engagement piece of the lesson. The teacher will explain how it is more efficient to count by ten's when possible. The teacher will show on the smartboard/board how to circle a group of objects/dots and to write a 10 beside each one. The teacher will then have the students help count all the sets by counting by tens. The teacher will show that if there are any dots left over that will not make another group of 10, to not circle the dots and to leave the dots and the remaining dots will be called a one. The teacher will count all the 10's first, and then count all the ones to add to it to find the total. The teacher will split the class in half and let one group practice the 100 Hunt game to assess adding 10 and let the other half use the Making Sets of Ten worksheet to assess grouping 10 ones into a set of 10. When the worksheet group is finished, the students will trade places and activities. The teacher will review with the students how to do tally marks with four vertical lines and the 5th diagonal. The teacher will call out several numbers and let the students draw the corresponding tally marks. The teacher will review how to use tally marks on the board and give the students white boards and markers to represent numbers called out. The teacher will then draw a dot and a stick and a square on the board and write the numbers 1, 10, and 100 under each figure respectively. The teacher will draw several combinations of the pictures and have the student work in groups to find out the totals. When students seem confident, the teacher will begin leading the students on a walk around the school to count all the pairs of shoes collected. The teacher will need to prepare for this by finding the most efficient way to walk throughout the school ahead of time. The teacher will have students follow with white boards and make a tally mark for every 10 the students hear called out. The teacher will remind the students that 10 ten sticks will equal 100. The teacher will walk around the school and count the pairs* *of shoes and emphasize every 10 by calling it out loud enough for all to hear. The teacher will stop at 100 and have the students erase the 10 Ten Stick Tally Marks and draw a square at the top. The teacher will continue counting out 10's and go around the building and stopping for each hundred. When the teacher gets to the last shoes, help the students count how many 10's were left, and have the students draw that many Ten Sticks beside the 100 squares. The teacher will tell the students to draw any 1 dots for any ones that were left over that did not make a final 10. The teacher and students will together count up the 100 squares, Ten Sticks, and One dots to see the final total. The teacher will remind the students that the class was counting pairs of shoes which were actually two's...so the final number can be doubled to see the total number of individual shoes collected. The teacher will take the students and return to the room and compare the number collected from the guesses made at the student engagement piece at the beginning of the lesson. The students will put a pair of shoes in a bag and carry it to the gym to be put in larger bags and loaded onto the truck to take to the delivery site. The students will complete the created Reflection Assessment with the teacher.

**Technological Engagement**

Smartboard and internet to use the game 100 Hunt

Computer lab, lap top, tablets to play the 100 Hunt game

Smartphone to photograph or video the walk/count around the school

**Collecting and Documenting Evidence of Learning**

The teacher will have the students play the 100 Hunt game. (The student will be able to find the number given plus 10 in 5 seconds or less 3 times.)

The teacher will give the Making Sets of 10 worksheet to students. (The student will only circle groups of 10 and will have the correct total at the bottom.)

The teacher will give the students white boards and markers to use dots, tally marks, and squares to represent the shoe count. (The student will have dots, ten sticks, and 100 squares drawn to represent the number of shoes counted.)

**Student Self-Reflection and Action Steps**

Students will be given time to reflect and discuss their learning with their peers.

**Feedback/Instructional Adjustments**

Practice the tally marks and counting by 10's in small groups to reinforce this concept with those who need it.

**Extended Learning Opportunities **

The students can play the "100 Hunt" game at centers, small groups, or in computer lab to practice fluency with tens.

The teacher will practice counting large numbers by 10's to get numbers larger than 100 with any students who need more help in small groups.

**Teacher Reflection of Learning**

Find someone to help you with the walk the school shoe count. I had another adult with me, and doubt I could have done it without a second individual helping to keep everyone at the correct number as I was walking and counting and doing my board as an example.
