Nine, Nine, Nine! - Section 2: Guided Practice

I believe that for a Kindergartner, this assignment is a complex task. A solid foundation in number sense is vital in making my students successful mathematicians. Common Core requires students to model with mathematics and break apart numbers. I love this particular task for those reasons. The first few numerals (1,2) can be difficult, but by the time we make it to 9, my students are confident and successful!

# Nine, Nine, Nine!

Lesson 5 of 6

## Objective: Students will be able to build the numeral nine in multiple ways.

*25 minutes*

#### Introduction

*10 min*

To begin this lesson, I gather students in front of the white board for a quick video. I inform the class that we will be working with a certain numeral today, and that after the video I am hoping they can guess the number. This gets my students' attention right away, my class loves it when I give them little challenges.

After viewing the video, my students are all excited to tell me the number for today's lesson is 9.

#### Guided Practice

*15 min*

The assignment today can be used with any numeral up to 10. I actually use it for each number, but on this particular day I was highlighting 9. The activity asks students to provide a numeral word, ten frame, tallies, and picture for a specific number; in this case 9.

My students are already familiar with numeral words, ten frames, and tallies. Our previous lessons, The Math Wall, and Calendar Time all incorporate these concepts.

I prefer to have students complete this assignment with me in a guided setting, rather than independently. I have given the assignment with other numerals as independent practice in the past, and I feel that students are more successful when we discuss each bubble together. In addition, they love coming up to the board to help. I display the assignment on our projection screen while students are sitting at their tables with the assignment in front of them. I call on students to come up and help me fill in each bubble. As we complete each section, students are following along and filling in their own papers. I walk around the room as we work to ensure each student is on the right track.

I have included a picture and student video of a completed assignment.

Once we have completed the assignment together, students are directed to place them into their mailboxes for home.
