Here defined a lesson plan showing an about adding and subtracting of one digit and two digit numbers in the way of party concept.

Achieving conceptual understanding is an important component of mathematics education. Mathematics classroom is always needed to begin with several examples to encourage students. Before any procedural practice it is necessary to attain a basic knowledge of any concept in Math's classroom.

What is lesson plans?
The word lesson plan says that to plan about lessons. When teacher starts new chapter in the class, she tries to put some encouraging plans for students regarding that chapter. Lesson plan is method to teach that shows step by step procedure in the class with innovative concept. It is guided practice the students use to try new skills.

Student can gets to know with the basics of their chapter with this thought. This method is not to write or remember formulas but only understanding how comes formulas and for what. Student can gets detailed description of the course of with the instruction by lesson plans.

Lesson Plan Title : Adding and Subtracting
Age Range: Grade 1 through Grade 3
Overview and Purpose: The student will practice Adding and Subtracting numbers with the party concept. They will make a group. They will need some party things like, chocolates, wafers, caps, pizzas. Teacher will give some number of chocolates and wafers to each student. They will count how many total things they get by adding them and how many more than others they have by subtracting methods.

Objective: The student will be able to add and subtract numbers of one digit and two digits.

Resources: Make sure that every student gets different number of things but it must not all same things. Student should get every of pizza, chocolates and wafers.

Activities: Explain to the students that they are planning a party. Give them the guidelines of how many students there are or how much of each type of food they have. (I.e. Pizzas, chocolates, wafers).
Have the students work in groups of three to count the correct amount of food . Encourage them to check how much amount they have for particular things and to check if they have more food than others. Make them understand where to use addition and subtraction. Explain them how to add things and how to subtract the numbers to know correct number of things they have are more or less than other students.

When all the groups are finished, discuss with students. Have each group present how did they come to know to addition and subtraction concept.

Closure: This is a practical application that we use in our daily lives. This activity will make them understand easily of addition and subtraction of one digit and two digit forever!
