Many kindergarteners come to school with rote counting skills, but they often do not understand that the numbers they can recite actually represent quantities. This lesson helps to make that connection.
Goldilocks and The Three Bears is a story about a little girl who visits the home of three bears. Lots of things in the house come in 3s! Students will learn about the numbers 1, 2, and 3 by listening to the story and counting objects.
Changing the configuration of items often confuses young learners. They may think the number of item changes. This lesson will help students understand that a set has the same number of items regardless of the configuration.
