Kinder/Chapter 4: Represent and Compare Number to 10
Thoughts on Lessons:
- Lesson 4.1: Focus on making 10 with different addends. Activity: Shake and Spill with cups. Make centers for other numbers.
- Lesson 4.2: Skip lesson part about writing the number. Work on throughout the rest of the year in centers.
- Lesson 4.3: Activity – How did you make ten? Make anchor chart.
- Lesson 4.4: Order amounts using scaffolds – center.
- Lesson 4.5: Match and compare sets.
- Lesson 4.6: Centers on counting out quantities in different configurations.
- Lesson 4.7: Say what you know about an number. i.e. “7 is more than 6”
Centers to Build or Adjust:
- Who has More?: Students play in pairs by selecting a card. The predict who has more, then they build the amount and compare to see how has more. Materials: Cards. Assessment: Can the student tell how has more?
- Who has Fewer?: Students play in pairs by selecting a card. The predict who has fewer, then they build the amount and compare to see how has fewer. Materials: Cards.Assessment: Can the student tell how has fewer?
- Make ___?: A student picks a card and tell his/her partner to, “Make __.” using 2 different colors Unifix cubes. Both partners build the amount then compare for accuracy and to see how it was done. They say, “I made ___ with ___ and ___. They check to see if the same amounts are made. Materials: Cards, Unifix Cubes. Assessment: Can the student explain why they should still have the same amounts? Can the students tell each part that makes up the whole?
- Teacher Tell Me: A student acts as the teacher and says, “Count out ___.” Then he/she checks to see if her students did it. Materials: Cards. Assessment: Can the students accurately count out quantities?
- Dots Me: Student A places dots on an index card and student B writes how many on the other side. Materials: Index cards folded in half, circle sticker dots. Assessment: Can the student write numerals to represent the number of dots?
