Lesson Plan #:AELP-ATH0016
AUTHOR: Chris Cox; Christian Community Elementary School, Fremont, CA
Grade Level(s): Kindergarten, 1
OVERVIEW: Most children enter the first grade able to count to twenty and many to 100; and most recognize numerals to twenty in isolation and can match one to one. However, each year there are a number of children to whom all of this is foreign. What they have learned is rote and not truly conceptualized. The following activity is designed to reinforce what many already know and to teach numeral recognition, one to one matching and the writing of numerals from 1-20.
PURPOSE: At the beginning of the year it is important to evaluate the needs of the individual child in as non threatening a way as possible. The purpose of this activity is to evaluate and reinforce numeral recognition, one to one matching and the writing of numerals from 1-20.
As a result of this activity 80% of the students will be able to :
Anno’s Counting Book (1975), other counting books, pens or crayons, laminator or clear contact paper, a saddle stapler
