Lesson Plan Description

This fully scripted Kindergarten half day lesson plan is broken down into 2 separate segments (30-60 minutes each). The lessons address Counting and Cardinality: Count forward beginning from a given number within the known sequence (instead of having to begin at 1) (K.CC.2). These lessons include: review of counting by 1s to 20 starting at 1, and introduction to counting sequences using a number line, whole group practice counting forward starting at a given number that is less than 20, partner practice counting forward starting at a given number,  an exit slip as an optional assessment component, and a game called, “Tap and Count” to help students review and practice the skill of counting forward.

  • Segment 1: Students will review known numbers 1 – 20. Next they will discover (as a whole group) how to start counting forward when starting from a number other than 1. Students will then practice counting forward from a given number other than 1 with a partner and finally, students will complete individual work to show understanding of counting forward from a given number other than 1.
  • Segment 2: Students will enhance their ability to count forward from a given number other than 1 by playing a game.

These lessons can be taught over the span of a half day or you can use the lessons independently, broken up over several days.
