This resource is included in my 80 page Common Core aligned Gingerbread Skills Pack:
Prep: Print and laminate the number cards. Print one set if using as a learning center, or multiple sets for small group cooperative work.
1. Display the poem on the smartboard, or print to display. Read the poem to your students and ask them what the poem is about.
2. Show the number cards and ask the students what they think the words “Put the numbers in order” is telling them to do.
3. Introduce Skill: “Today, you will be sequencing the numbers 0 to 20. “ Talk about the strategy you want the learners to use (For example, “You can look at a number line to help you as you work.” Or, “You can say the numbers in order as you work to help you know the next number.”
4. Allow students to work in the desired manner (small, cooperative groups or partners in a center are two examples). Monitor and support as needed.
