This lesson is for grades Prek-K on math. At Home Learning Lessons are a partnership between the North Carolina Department of Public Instruction, PBS North Carolina, and the William and Ida Friday Institute for Educational Innovation. Each lesson contains a video instructional lesson, a PDF lesson plan with a transcript, and a PDF file of extension activities.
This resource accompanies our Rethink Kindergarten Math Counting & Cardinality unit. It includes ideas for use, ways to support exceptional children, ways to extend learning, digital resources and tools, tips for supporting English Language Learners and students with visual and hearing impairments. There are also ideas for offline learning.
This unit was created by the Rethink Education Content Development Team. This course is aligned to the NC Standards for Kindergarten Math for Counting & Cardinality.
Students will work with partners to put chips into a bag of a certain number between 11 and 30. The chips will be a different color on each side. Once the chips fall out of the bag the student will see different combinations that make the same number. They will record 4 combinations for each number. This lesson was developed by NCDPI as part of the Academically and/or Intellectually Gifted Instructional Resources Project. This lesson plan has been vetted at the state level for standards alignment, AIG focus, and content accuracy.
This document is the About the Cluster document created by the authors of the NC2ML Instructional Frameworks. Read this document prior to teaching the cluster in order to get insight into the clustering of the standards, mathematics to be taught, and important considerations.This document is not remixable since the document has been written by creators of the NC2ML Instructional Frameworks.
This is the About the Cluster document written by the NC2ML group who created the instructional frameworks. This is a great resource to read while starting to plan for Kindergarten Cluster 2.
In this activity, students take turns with a partner turning over cards and placing them on a grid in the proper counting sequence. Students explain their thinking and continue taking turns until all spaces on the grid are filled.
In this activity, students are given Bingo boards with numbers 2-15 randomly arranged, 15 counters, and a set of number cards with the numbers 1-15 on them. In pairs, students take turns drawing a number card, stating the number after the number on the card, and places his/her counter on that number on the game board.
This number after bingo activity increases student flexibility with the number sequence and their ability to start counting sequences at various points.
This activity will demonstrate students' ability to count forward from a given number by lining up in the correct order. Each student is given a number card, when the teacher says, "Go" students form a line in the correct order. When the teacher asks them to read their numbers, the first student holds up his/her card and says the number on their card. This continues until the sequence ends.
