Reflection: Connection to Prior Knowledge Exploring More (Review) - Section 2: Presentation of Lesson


This activity is almost identical to the activity that I did on the second day of teaching equal groups.  I like to repeat activities with similar skills because it reduces the time needed to explain the procedures of the activity which allows for more time to focus on the actual concept being taught.  Today I could see a large reduction in the amount of time it took the students to get to their seats and start creating their groups of color tiles.  The students also cleaned up more quickly and got started on their paper more quickly.  While new and exciting lessons are great and get the students excited about learning, it's important to not forget that kindergarten students need repetition and routines.

Unit 1: Comparing and Sorting Objects
Lesson 13 of 17

Objective: Students will be able to compare groups of objects, using the language more and greater than, to decide which group has more.

Big Idea: Comparing the number of objects in two groups using one-to-one correspondence is a foundational skill that students will build on as they begin to compare numbers.
