Step 2: Teach Lesson
Give the student 50 small objects, such as beans or counters. Play the video from Step 1, Animals on Board.
● Pause the video after each set of animals is introduced and have the student use their beans or counters to
display the math problem. Reveal the answer in the video after the student has correctly demonstrated the
Next, write the numbers from 1 to 20 in a straight line on the board. The numbers now act as a number line. Using the
number line help the student complete the Missing Addend worksheet in Step 3.
Once you have finished the worksheet, ask the student which method did they like best- Using the objects or the number
line? This will help you in future math lessons to better identify which learning style is best for your student.
