This unit provides you with 3-4 day lesson plans and materials to use with kindergarteners or beginning first graders for addition and subtraction. You will need the book Five Little Monkeys Jumping on the Bed by Eileen Christelow (or any version) for these activities. I plan to use these activities during my whole group math lesson. It moves the students from concrete (acting and story mats) to representational (story mat, math task).
*When printing you may need to choose the poster setting on your printer so that all sides print correctly.
Included in this unit:
-weekly outline of lessons
-daily lesson plans (not shown in pictures)
-story mat in outline and color
-monkey cutouts for story mat
-math task and rubric
-written word problems for 2 days (addition and subtraction)
-student writing paper for optional activity
Please ask any questions before purchasing. I will be posting additional units like this based on literature.
