Reflection: Lesson Planning All Aboard! Ordering Numbers 0-20 Least to Greatest - Section 4: Independent Practice


Ordering three numbers 0-20 is not a Common Core Standard for Kindergarten.  But I chose to include this lesson and the next because it gives me the opportunity to see how well my students can apply what they know about comparing numbers.  We have worked with numbers 0-20 now in great depth.  It was my hope that the students' number sense would allow them to complete this task.

It was interesting to watch the ease some students had in comparing their numbers.  Many of them wrote the numbers down in order from least to greatest without even physically moving the cards around.  A few struggled.  They often compared the first two numbers and did not even look at the third number.  My student teacher worked with these three students to help them look at all the numbers.  After they picked the smallest of the first two numbers she would slide the third number over and have them compare that one to the one they picked.  Two of them picked it up, but the third struggled.  This is a good clue that this student needs to further develop his number sense.
