Corps Member: CMA: Lesson Plan Date: Rough? Final? PRE-K MATH BLOCK LESSON PLAN (~60 min.) PRE-PLANNING: KNOW, SO, SHOW OBJECTIVE. What will your students be able to do? CONNECTION TO THE SUMMER ACHIEVEMENT GOAL. How does the objective connect to the summer achievement goal? SWBAT: recognize and identify which group has more, when one group of 1-10 objects contains more objects than the other group.

What will your students be able to do?  CONNECTION TO THE SUMMER ACHIEVEMENT GOAL. How does the objective connect to the summer achievement goal?  SWBAT: recognize and identify which group hasmore, when one group of 1-10 objects containsmore objects than the other group.(PK.Math.More/Less-2) Young students need to build concepts of quantity, in bothabsolute and relative terms, in order to prepare them for later challenges such as estimation, addition and subtraction. (INFORMAL) ASSESSMENT. How will you know whether your students have made progress toward the objective?  How and when will you assess mastery?    Anecdotal records, looking at student work, small-group observation. KEY POINTS. What three to five key points will you emphasize?  -the group that has MORE will have a larger number of things in it-we can count to see how many there are in each group to know which one has more-sometimes we can just look at one group compared to the other and see which one has more!    L   E   S   S   O   N   C   Y   L   C   E  :   G   O CALENDAR & WEATHER ROUTINE. (10 min.) How will students practice telling time, including the daily schedule, days of the week, months of the year,dates, holidays, etc.?  How will students develop and practice using weather knowledge?  How will students build and practice additional math skills through repetitive routines?   How will you set and reinforce behavioral expectations?  *Please remember that this section should remain very consistent across institute! MATERIALS. ã Count the number of days posted in the current month, then students predictwhat today’s date/number will be. Post today’s date card, then count days incurrent month again. ã Note a student’s upcoming birthday, count how many days until thestudent’s birthday. ã “Read” the pattern on date cards, and predict what will come next. ã Talk about current day of the week, sing “days of the week” song ã Talk about current month, sing “months of the year” song ã Post number of days in school, count up to today’s number. Discuss patternin number line, predict what will come next. ã Discuss seasons- what season is it now, what kind of weather do we have inthis season, when will the season change/what comes next? ã Check weather, decide on how it looks and feels, post descriptors. ã Tally weather on graph, discuss graph- which type of weather hasmore/less/same?Tape, post-it notes,marker  WHOLE-GROUP INTRODUCTION TO NEW MATERIAL. (10 min.)  What key points will you emphasize and reiterate?  How will you ensure that students actively take-in information?   How will you vary your approach to make information accessible to all students?  Which potential misunderstandings will you anticipate?  Why will students be engaged/interested?   Okay friends, today we’re going to compare groups, to see which group has more – just like we do with our weather graphs. Our friend Stitch is going to help us learntoday! Stitch is always hungry! He likes fruit a lot- but he always wants to eat whatever there is MORE of- he doesn’t care what kind of fruit it is. I have someapples, and also some oranges. Let’s see which kind of fruit he would want to eat! I think he would want the oranges, because that pile has more.. How can I know for sure? [student response] Oh yes, I can count!! 1-2-3 apples. 1-2-3-4-5 oranges.Which is a bigger number, 3 or 5? [student response] You’re right, 5 is bigger! Let’sfeed the oranges to Stitch. Repeat the game two or three more times with different fruits and amounts.Set behavioral expectations for centers and small-group before students aredismissed from the carpet. Note: Those students who appear to be struggling with identifying “more” and “less” in the whole group will be assigned to the first small group. Stuffed animal with alarge mouth, plastic fruitmanipulatives  SMALL-GROUP PRACTICE. (35 min. total: 15 min. activity, 5 min. clean-up time,15 min. activity) How will you clearly state and model behavioral expectations?   How will you ensure that all students have multiple opportunities to practice?  How will you scaffold practice exercises from easy to hard?  How will you monitor and correct student performance?  Why will students be engaged/interested?  TEACHER-LED INSTRUCTION (15min)INDEPENDENT CENTERS (15 min)Opening: Remember how we fed Stitchbefore? Now you will get to feed your own animals!  (Quick!) Intro to New Material: Let’s practice with this animal- a tiger! He’shungry!! He can have apples or pears-let’s see which one he’ll want. Help mecount!  Model counting, choose larger group, feed to tiger. Independent Practice: Now you’regoing to give your friend a choice for their animal. Noah, pick out two kinds of fruit for Raven’s lion to choose from.Great! Oranges or grapes. Raven getsto count the oranges and grapes todecide what kind of fruit her lion would rather eat. Then once she has fed her lion, she’s going to pick out some fruit for Noah’s bear. You will get to feed your animal two times. Monitor pairs workingtogether! Help students who are havingtrouble. Take anecdotal notes aspossible/relevant. Closing: Wow, our animals have full tummies- they can’t eat any more food! How did we choose what food they would eat? That’s right, we counted how many of each kind, and picked the groupwith more. The group with MORE always has a higher number in it!  Materials: Empty milk cartons withclipart animal bodies pasted on, andmouth cut out around hole in milk cartonso manipulatives can go in; fruitmanipulatives Note: Students in the first group whoappear to be struggling with identifying more and less – after the small group –will be given a different center activity. Objective: SWBAT: extend an AB, ABB or ABC pattern by adding pattern elements tothe end of a given pattern beginning.(PK.Math.Patterns-4a, b, c) Activity: Pattern trains with snap cubesand pattern train cards in ABB and ABCpatterns. Students start by copying thepattern, and then extend it by continuingwith those color cubes. Advancedstudents can create their own ABB or ABC or other pattern. Materials: Pattern trains, snap cubes Group #1 Students (small-group first): Anthony, Gianna, Kiana, Raven, Noah,Oscar  Group #2 Students (centers first): Alliyah, Luis, Yvette, Juan, Seth, Vicente CLOSING. (5 min.) How will students summarize what they learned?  How will students be asked to state the significance of what they learned?  How will you provide all students with opportunities to demonstrate mastery of (or progress toward) theobjective?  Why will students be engaged/interested?   My friends, we did a lot of math work today! Let’s talk about the work we did, and what we learned.What can my friends who worked at their tables tell us?  Students may say “weplayed with cubes,” “we made patterns” etc. Oh yes- you made some wonderful  patterns. I also noticed my friends Luis and Yvette working so nicely together,sharing the cubes. That’s what I like to see when you are working at centers.We fed lots of hungry animals today at Ms. Halgren’s table! Can you tell me whichgroup of fruit the animals wanted to eat- the group with more, or less? [student response] That’s right- MORE. We know a group has more because we can count.The higher number means there are more fruits in that group. More means a bigger number. We’re going to keep learning about groups that have MORE tomorrow.    R   E   I   N   F   O   R   C   E   M   E   N   T HOMEWORK (if appropriate). How will students practice what they learned? 
