Reflection: Lesson Planning Zero, My Hero! Exploring the Number Zero - Section 4: Independent Practice and Informal Assessment


The lesson effectively weaves language arts and math together.  The students loved the story Zero My Hero and the had the opportunity to make predictions and really engage in the text.  I encourage the students to read and reread the student books at home.  I sent a large labeled Zip Loc bag home with every student to keep the student books in and I heard from several parents that they were reading these stories on a regular basis.  The students really enjoyed this lesson and I hope you do too!

Zero, My Hero! Exploring the Number Zero

Unit 1: Exploring Numbers 0-10
Lesson 11 of 14

Objective: Students will be able to identify the number zero, identify groups with zero objects and represent the number zero.

Big Idea: 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.
