This Fluency Activity is a part of the Lesson 8, Unit 5, Grade 1. This activity prepares students for Lesson 11, where they add 5 minutes until they reach 30 minutes to connect half past the hour to 30 minutes past the hour. The suggested sequence of this activity enables students to use their experience with analogous addition to add 5. Be sure to provide enough think time for students to mentally add or count on, as needed. If students require more support, consider replacing this activity with Whisper Count from Lesson 7.
