·       Lesson
Introduction (10 minutes)
·         Have the students come together as a group.
·         To motivate the students, begin by saying, "Today, we will be learning about numbers. Raise your hand if you know a number."
·         Randomly select students to share the number they know. This taps into their prior knowledge.
·         Write down the numbers that are shared on the board.
·         Say, "I will share with you a poem by Mother Goose that uses all the numbers from one to ten."
·         Read the poem One, Two, Buckle My Shoe.
·         Have the students recite the poem after you.
Explicit Instruction/Teacher Modeling (10 minutes)
·         Draw a large circle on your board.
·         Place 10 magnetic shapes to the right of the circle.
·         Explain to the students that there are no items in the circle. Nothing there represents the number zero. Zero represents nothing at all.
·         Move one magnetic shape into the circle, then write the number 1 above the circle. Have the students repeat, "one."
·         Add another magnetic shape into the circle. Count one, two. Erase the 1 and write 2. Have the students repeat, "one, two."
·         Repeat until all 10 magnetic shapes are in the circle, changing the number at the top of to reflect the number of items in the circle.
·         Use your index finger to count all 10 magnetic shapes in the circle.
Guided Practice/Interactive Modeling (10 minutes)
·         Have the students return to their desks.
·         Each student should have a piece of construction paper and glue.
·         Each student should have 55 beads, buttons, or foam shapes.
·         Model the upcoming activity on the whiteboard using magnetic shapes.
·         Make a list on the board: 1-10. Have the students copy you as you place the correct amount of items next to each number.
·         Below is an example how the students' work should look. Each asterisk represents a bead, button, or foam shape.
·         1 *
·         2 **
·         3 ***
·         4 ****
·         5 *****
·         6 ******
·         7 *******
·         8 ********
·         9 *********
·         10 **********
Independent Working Time (10 minutes)
·         Provide each student with one of the Know Your Numbers 1 to 10 worksheets and a pencil.
·         Read the instructions for section one.
·         Allow the students a few minutes to complete section one.
·         Read the instructions for section two.
·         Allow the students a few minutes to complete section two.
·         Read the instructions for section three.
·         Allow the students a few minutes to complete section three.
·         Collect the worksheets for grading.
·        Differentiation
·         Enrichment: Give above level students the entire set of ten worksheets from Know Your Numbers 1 to 10. Allow them to complete these at their own pace.
·         Support: Have struggling students complete the Number 1 Tracing worksheet during Independent Working Time for extra practice.
Assessment (10 minutes)
·         Conduct mini-conferences with the students individually at your desk.
·         Give them each a random amount of objects and ask them to use their index finger to count the items aloud.
Review and Closing (10 minutes)
·         Have the students come together on the floor in a circle in groups of 10.
·         Assign a student to start and assign another student to end.
·         Have the students count off 1 to 10 in each group.

Ø Simple Addition to 10
o    Number Sense
o    Numbers 0-10
o    Counting Numbers 1-10
o    Addition
o    Addition and Patterns of 1 More
v Materials and Preparation
·         Caterpillar Addition worksheet (1 per student)
·         Crayons
·         Shaving cream (about 2 bottles per class)
·       Learning Objectives
Students will be able to practice simple addition.
Introduction (10 minutes)
·         Ask students to find various items around the room. For instance, call on a student to find one toy. Then, call on another student to find two chairs.
·         After you have about 10 items, ask students how many items they have all together.
·         Inform the students that they just practiced simple addition!
Explicit Instruction/Teacher Modeling (15 minutes)
·         Encourage students to pay attention and practice adding along with Teacher
Guided Practice/Interactive Modeling (15 minutes)
·         Now, give each student a handful of shaving cream. Invite students to practice drawing 1 wheel. Then, have them add another.
·         Ask students how many wheels they have all together.
·         Have students practice making various addition problems independently. They may need guidance through this.
Independent Working Time (5 minutes)
·         Now, have students complete the Caterpillar Addition worksheet independently.
·         Walk around the classroom to make sure all students are on task.
·        Differentiation
·         Enrichment: Have students in need of enrichment work with struggling students during the shaving cream activity.
·         Support: Students having difficulty adding in the shaving cream activity should be paired with another student.
·         Assessment should be based on the outcome of the worksheet.
Review and Closing (15 minutes)
·         Call students up one at a time to the board.
·         Invite them to draw a wheel like Wally, or another object, and demonstrate a simple addition problem. If they need help, draw the object for them and have them count until they have the answer!
Ø Counting Petals
o    Number Sense
o    Numbers 0-10
o    Numbers 11-20
v Materials and Preparation
·         Grocery bags (1 per student)
·         Green paint
·         Paintbrushes (1 per table)
·         White paper
·         Glue
·         Flower Addition worksheet
·         Spring Flowers worksheet
·       Learning Objectives
Students will be able to develop awareness of numerals by counting the petals on a flower.
Introduction (5 minutes)
·         Explain to your class that they will be going on an outdoor scavenger hunt for flowers. Instruct them to collect their own flowers to create beautiful art and count petals.
·         Ask for a volunteer to explain what a flower is. Explain that a petal is like a colored leaf on a flower.
·         Pass out grocery bags to each student, and head outside.
Explicit Instruction/Teacher Modeling (20 minutes)
·         Instruct your students to collect at least two flowers.
·         Once each student has collected flowers, go back inside the classroom, and direct your students to count the petals on the flowers they have.
·         Demonstrate what the art project will look like. You may want to do one yourself so that you can show them what you want it to look like.
Guided Practice/Interactive Modeling (5 minutes)
·         Practice gluing the flower petals onto a piece of paper to show your students so that they understand the process.
·         Count the number of petals aloud.
Independent Working Time (25 minutes)
·         Ask your students to pluck the petals off of the flowers and glue the petals to the white paper, creating their own new flowers. Once the petals have been glued on, instruct them to add a center, a stem, and other outdoor features with the paint.
·         Have them count and either write or paint the number of petals above each of their flowers.
·        Differentiation
·         Enrichment: Give your students the Flower Addition worksheet to count additional flowers. Alternatively, have your students add up the total number of petals from their collected flowers, and direct them to write the total number on their papers.
·         Support: Work with students independently with flashcards. Give your students the Spring Flower worksheet to practice identifying order and numbers.
Assessment (5 minutes)
·         Walk around and make sure that the number of petals corresponds to the written number.
Review and Closing (5 minutes)
·         Have the students show their illustrations to the rest of the class.

·         Ask your students to say how many petals they had. Go around the classroom.
