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.
In this Khan Academy interactive, students will be asked to identify whether the number of objects, within 10, in one group is greater than, less than, or equal to the number of objects in another group, by using matching and counting strategies.
The children will use a mat with a space to place the alligator (two popsicle sticks glued together with a googlie eye and paper teeth.) Each group of two will have a deck of cards and a stack of counters (beans, unifix cubes, red/yellow chips). They will play a game where the person who doesn't lose all their chips wins. 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.
In this assessment task students will cut and classify pictures. They will be asked to explain how the pictures are sorted, count the number in each group, identify the group that is greater and write the correct number from 1-20. Assessment sheets and a rubric are provided.
This marbel counting iteration of greater than, less than, and equal to with a specific "target number" help strengthen the concept for students.
After reading How the Grinch Stole Christmas, students will work together to build a sleigh for the Grinch so he can take the presents and decorations from the Whos.
The Common Core State Standards (CCSS) videos are designed to support states, schools, and teachers in the implementation of selected math standards. Each video is an audiovisual resource that focuses on one or more specific standards through examples and illustrations geared to enhancing understanding. The intent of each content-focused video is to clarify the meaning of the individual standard rather than to be a guide on how to teach each standard, although the examples can be adapted for instructional use.
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.
In this lesson, students answer "how many" questions to 5 in linear configurations (5-group) with 4 in an array configuration. Compare ways to count 5 fingers.
