Lesson Plan : Ordinal Numbers
Teacher Name: | Rocio Flores |
Grade: | Grade 1 |
Subject: | Math |
Topic: | Mesurement and Geometry: Ordinal Numbers |
Content: | Mathemathics Standards: Mesurement and Geometry: 2.4 Arrange and describe objects in space by proximity, position, and direction. |
Goals: | Children use numbers in their ordinal sense as they line up, tell about placements in a race, or describe the order of events. In this section, children practice using ordinal numbers for first through tenth. |
Objectives: | Identify ordinal numbers from first through tenth. |
Materials: | Teacher's Math Book, Student's Math Packets, ordinal number cards, overhead, overhead pattern blocks |
Introduction: | Yesterday you learned about numbers that show patterns. Today you are learning about numbers that tell pisition. |
Development: | (I do) . Make a row of five shapes. Tell children to count how many shapes are in the row. . Explain that you can identify where the shapes are in line by using ordinal numbers. Then point to each shape and say: first, second, third, fourth, fifth. . Have volunteers point to different shapes based on your directions. For example, say: Point to the second shape in the row. . Ask questions such as: Where is the tenth shape? How many shapes are in the second row? |
Practice: | Teacher will: . Ask 10 volunteers to line up facing the class. Have them turn to face right and count 1 to 10 as you touch each child's shoulder. . Then give each child the corresponding ordinal card. Read the ordinal number, and have children repeat after you. . After all ten children in line have been given cards, ask questions such as: Who is fourth in line? Who is sixth in line? . Then have children mix up and ask volunteers to help you rearrange them in the correct order. . Students due page 215 in their math packet with teacher. |
Accommodations: | Teacher does hands-on and overhead activity to help knistetic Learners and visual learners understand this lesson better. These activities are also helpfull to English Language Learners. |
Checking For Understanding: | Students due Ordinal Numbers page 216 in their math packet. |
Closure: | Teacher asks: What have you learned today? Students should answer: Ordinal Numbers Teacher will ask more about ordinal numbers to check for understanding. Closure: Yesterday you learned about numbers that show patters. Today you learned about numbers that tell position. |
