This file contains a Common Core Read Aloud lesson plan for "Rooster's Off to See the World" by Eric Carle. This story is a splendid story which involves numeration. Included are 15 picture cards (not all are pictured) for retelling the story and following the lesson plan for an interactive math response which focuses on counting and cardinality skills of relatig numbers to quantities, seeing how numbers compare to each other, and "one more".
The lesson includes prereading discussions to activate prior knowledge and to set purpose for reading, vocabulary development, story introduction with discussion of author/illustrator and post-reading comprehension/discussion questions
There is a shared writing response as well!
You may also print a couple sets of the picture cards and use them as a math center to sort groups and arrange in order of count.
