For my grade 2, I will be working with addition up to 20. For example 15 + 2
Unconsciously Incompetent:
Students will use manipulative or count 15 by 1â€™s and then add the 2 (again the whole concept skip counting by 1)
Consciously Incompetent:
Some students might skip count by 5â€™s to 15 , then add the 2
Consciously Competent:
Students will start with the biggest number 15 and add 2
Unconsciously Competent:
They will just say the answer, but cannot represent their thinking in anyway!
Consciously Masterful:
Students will understand that we start with the biggest number 15 and then add 2
They can also represent their thinking using a number line or base 10 blocks to represent the 10 + 5 + 2
