Lesson Plan : Learning Numbers : Base Ten

 Teacher Name: Mrs. Payne Grade: Kindergarten Subject: Math

 Topic: Basic 1-10 Numerical System Content: Present the following terms: Number, Numerical System & Scale. Use multiple models to develop initial understandings of place value and the base-ten number system; Count with understanding. Goals: Children will be able to enunciate numbers 1-10 in numerical order. Children will be able to count numbers 1-10 with their fingers. Children will be able to visually identify numbers 1-10 in numerical form. Children will be able to identify a set number of objects shown visually (between numerical values of 1-10). Children will be able to identify a numerical value by hand/finger representation Objectives: The children will observe, demonstrate and interact with instructor to achieve provided goals. The children will positively reflect knowledge and understanding through performance assessment and verbal feedback. Materials: Computer, Monitor, White Board, Handouts, AV Support Introduction: The teacher will present terms. Number : A figure that is used to define groups of different things. Numerical System : Many numbers grouped together in order by value. Counting : To list numbers in their numerical scale. Development: First watch counting video on youtube via computer/monitor system : http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DU1A0fSW5_s&feature=related. Then the teacher will address the class with hand demonstration. The children will watch the teacher's demonstration and repeat/return the teachers actions with each number 1-10. This activity will be done simultaneously with counting video on youtube via computer/monitor system : http://www.youtube.com/watchv=0EOyjqcgqE&feature=mfu_in_order&list=UL. Practice: Whiteboard Activity: The teacher will use the classroom whiteboard to further demonstrate the numerical scale by grouping. While guided by the teacher, various groups of circles will be numerically identified by the class by using their number knowledge and finger counting. Accommodations: While independant practice is taking place, allow open teacher availability. The teacher will be available to the children to work one on one with the child and instruct according to any questions they may have. This will provide differentiated instruction to those children (who may vary in age group and understanding level) beyond the initial classroom instruction activities. Checking For Understanding: The teacher will use the computer/monitor system and present each picture shown on the lesson worksheet. The teacher will allow the class to verbally express the number shown first; followed by demonstrating the number through finger counting. The teacher will track student success/error rates to assess the children's level of understanding; as well as asking the children their thoughts on todays lesson. Closure: The children will be congratulated on their hard work and be asked to take their worksheets home to further practice their base ten numbers with their families at home. Evaluation: Dependant on class assessment and the children's feedback. Teacher Reflections: To be completed post-lesson.
