This is a great math lesson to help your children with addition using part/part/whole. This lesson includes exploration, modeling, student practice, and an assessment. Everything is done for you!
We put children into groups of 2-3 children and hand out the exploration materials to them. We like for this part of the lesson to be driven by the children. They are to look at the cards and talk with each other to try to discover what we are learning about that day. We then allow groups time to share out their ideas. Here, they are given examples of part/part/whole mats with a number sentence to match each. 

We have included several examples for you to model how to complete the part/part/whole mats. Some have missing addends, some have missing sums. We like to use think alouds to show how to complete the mats and answer any questions the children might have.

Student Practice
This is the best part of the lesson! The children work in their cooperative groups to help each other fill in the part/part/whole mats. We give them dry erase markers for them to draw simple pictures. We encourage them to draw counters as it is easier and takes less time! We love seeing the children work together and help each other out when needed.

We have also included an assessment with varying missing parts for you to check for student understanding.

We hope you like this math lesson and will check it out in our store! It is perfect in the next couple of weeks while many classrooms will be celebrating Read Across America in conjunction with Dr. Seuss' birthday!
