Lesson Plan : Numbers 0-10

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

 Topic: Numbers 0-10 Content: Visual, tactile, and oral presentation of numbers 0-10 Goals: Rote count 0-10; write numerals 0-10; identify numerals 0-10 Objectives: The learner will identify, write, and model numbers 0-10 Materials: Sandpaper number cards 0-10, connecting counting cubes, number-line, computer, pencil, lined paper, CBA in number identification, missing numbers, and quantity discrimination using numbers 0-10 Introduction: Conduct short (1 min) CBA�s on missing numbers, number identification, and quantity discrimination using numbers 0-10. Explain to students that they are going to participate in some fun activities to help them learn the numbers 0-10. Let the students know they will be working with counting cubes, sandpaper numbers, and the computer in today�s lesson. Development: Activity One: Hand out number-line and demonstrate rote counting from 0-10 while pointing to each numeral as you say it. Activity Two: Hand out the sandpaper number cards and demonstrate how to trace a number with your finger, then trace the number on the desk, then write the number using pencil on lined paper. During all three steps, say the number orally. Activity Three: Hand out connectable counting cubes and demonstrate to the students how to first put the sandpaper number cards in order 0-10. Next, place the correct number of cubes under each number (on the number 10, connect the cubes to make a ten block and explain that the number 10 is special because all the cubes like to stick together making a special 10 block). Practice: Activity One: Have the students point to their number-line and everyone rote count 0-10 and 10-0 pointing at each number as they say it aloud. Activity Two: Have the students trace the sandpaper numbers, trace the number on their desk, and then write the number using pencil on lined paper while orally saying the numbers through each step. Help the students with any numbers they get stuck on, and praise all correct responses. Activity Three: Have the students repeat teacher demonstrated process of placing cards in sequence 0-10, then placing the correct number of cubes under each number card. Accommodations: This lesson contains visual, tactile, and oral presentation of the numbers. Manipulatives and computers are used to enhance learning. Checking For Understanding: Have students independently read from their number-lines 0-10 and 10-0. Have students write out numbers 0-10, referencing their number lines if they need to. Closure: Ask students questions during closure: How many numbers did we learn about today? Answer 11. What is special when we have 10 of something? Answer 10 likes to stick together. What two digits make the number 10? Answer 1 and 0. What number comes after 3, 5, 7, and 9? Answer 4,6,8,10. Evaluation: Conduct short (1 min) CBA�s on missing numbers, number identification, and quantity discrimination using numbers 0-10. Log all students� progress. Teacher Reflections: This lesson works best in a small group environment. The students enjoyed working with the textured number cards and liked their independent practice on the computer. The student�s CBA increased at the end of the lesson.
