Lessons that teach students to recognize the number of objects in a set without having to count the objects is the goal of the lessons in this packet. By Claire Guidry
The Common Core Standards would like students to be able to see a set of objects and know how many are in it without having to count the objects out.(Subitizing)
In the preview is a sample of the 4 sets of picture cards. The last set is a full set.
This packet is intending to share a simple method of repetition through slide show format to teach students how to recognize the number of objects in a set quickly. The slide show takes the place of small hand held flashcards. I have four sets of “Counting From 0-10” in this packet. When I open my slide show I put it on an extra large screen so it will catch the attention of all of my students.
This packet is full of engaging pictures for kindergarten students to hold their attention.
There are 95 slides in this packet.
The following is a tool I use to assist the students in achieving this standard. I put together 4 different sets of slides numbering 0-10.
The first set of objects is with pictures of fingers counting.
The second set of objects are arranged with numbers 5 and up using this 5 count pattern .
The third set is designed with the objects in rows.
The fourth set is designed with objects in a ten frame.
Before using the slides I make sure the students can count to ten orally and understand that each number represents a set of objects.
When I am ready to use the slides I make sure the students understand our goal is to be able to recognize how many objects are in each set without having to count them or spending very little time counting.
The slides are meant to be repeated several times.
Repetition is needed with all the of the sets. Statistics show that we need to repeat items many times before they will remain in our long term memory. For some students their brains are still developing this skill and will need more repetition then other students whose brains have already developed the capability for this skill.
I hope you have fun teaching your students using this slide show presentation.
