Are your students ready to tackle and explore numbers 0-5? Everything you need to teach an engaging guided math unit is included here! Students will learn to recognize the numbers 1-5, use counting strategies, use five frames, understand quantities to 5, and begin to compare numbers.
These units were developed to be taught whole group but would also work well in a small group setting. The teacher will be guiding the students through a gradual-release model.
Each lesson includes a full lesson plan with:
*Warm Up - engaging whole body counting activities
*Teacher Directed - students will explore each concept with a hands-on activity.
*Partner Activity - students will work in pairs to play a game or complete an extension activity
*Independent Follow Up - students will apply what they learned whole group to an independent paper activity.
*Home Extension - Students can practice even more at home with a short practice page. If you do not give homework, these can easily be used as exit slips or for more practice in intervention groups.
*Differentiation Options - Below level/intervention and Enrichment options are included for each lesson!
*End of Unit Assessment
