Addition with M&Ms

Grade: Kindergarten
Author: Bailey Marcotte
Domain, cluster, standard:
Operations & Algebraic Thinking
Understand addition, and understand subtraction
- K.OAA.1= Represent addition and subtraction with objects, fingers, mental
images, drawings sounds, acting out situations, verbal explanations,
expressions, or equations.
- K.OAA.2= Solve addition and subtraction word problems, and add and
subtract within 10 by using objects or drawings to represent the problem.
Objectives:
The students will be able to use the manipulatives as a tool to correctly solve
three out of the four addition problems correctly.
Materials:
-

20 packets fun sized M&Ms


x20 M&M Math worksheets
The M&M Counting Book by Barbara McGrath
X20 sheets of paper towels

Anticipatory Set:
-

I will put the bag of M&Ms on each of their desks. Do you all like
M&Ms? Well today we are going to be working on some addition
problems by using M&Ms to help us.

Teaching Procedures and Learning Activities:


-

I am going to warm us up by reading this counting book.


After the book we will move to the first sheet I pass out that has,
Estimation on the first line.
Before the students open up their M&Ms I will ask the students, Do
you know what estimation is?

I will tell them, Estimation means you are guessing how many M&Ms
you think you have.
The students will then fill in the estimation blank. They will then open
up their M&Ms, count the M&Ms and put the number in the blank.
I will then go to the two addition problems that are on the sheet and
demonstrate with my M&Ms on the board, having the students help
me. Modeling what the student will be doing on the next sheet.
After I have modeled the first sheet, the students will each get their
own paper to work on.

Closure:
-

What did you learn by working with the M&Ms today?


At the end of the lesson I will tell the students that they learned what
estimation is and practiced their addition facts.

Independent practice:
-

The students will work on their individual M&M sheet.


They will sort their M&Ms into Colors first
Then they will work on the addition problems that are on their sheet
using their M&Ms as manipulatives.
The students who finish early can practice and make up their own
addition problems and write them on the back.

Assessment or Evaluation:
-

I will walk around the classroom while students are working on their
sheets. When I notice most students are finished with their problems, I
will call two/three students to come to the board and tell the class an
addition problem they did with their M&Ms. For example: I had four
blue M&Ms then I added two green M&Ms and got six total.

Standards for Mathematical practice:


1. Model with mathematics
2. Use appropriate tools strategically
3. Look for and make use of structure
