Count Up to 10 - Section 2: Mini Lesson

Math awareness and number concepts set the foundation for learning more advanced math concepts. Early exposure to math and number activities promote student's comfort with these skills. Opportunities to practice these skills increase a child’s confidence in math. This assignment may seem simple, but I know that my student's are benefiting.

# Count Up to 10

Lesson 6 of 6

## Objective: Students will be able to count and print the numerals 1-10.

#### Introduction

*5 min*

To begin this counting lesson, I gather students in front of the white board for a counting song. The children love this chicken counting song by Jack Hartmann. I have this CD, but I prefer to use the YouTube video because it gives my class a visual. The counts up to 10.

#### Mini Lesson

*10 min*

After our chicken dance, students take a seat in front of the white board. I display today's assignment. This assignment requires students to count various objects and then write the numeral. I call a student up to complete the first question together. She counts nine bells and writes the numeral 9. I tell the class that we need to double check her work. We count together and all decide she has given the correct answer.

This activity is aligned with Common Core - Counting and Cardinality. More specifically, one-to- one correspondence. When counting, the concept of one-to-one correspondence is the understanding that each object being counted represents “one more.” I like this assignment because it provides math awareness, which I discuss in my reflection.
