## Learning Objectives

Students will be able to identify and write numbers one to ten.

## Lesson

### Introduction (10 minutes)

• Have the students come together as a group.
• To motivate the students, begin by saying, "Today, we will be learning about numbers. Raise your hand if you know a number."
• Randomly select students to share the number they know. This taps into their prior knowledge.
• Write down the numbers that are shared on the board.
• Say, "I will share with you a poem by Mother Goose that uses all the numbers from one to ten."
• Read the poem One, Two, Buckle My Shoe.
• Have the students recite the poem after you.

### Explicit Instruction/Teacher Modeling (10 minutes)

• Draw a large circle on your board.
• Place 10 magnetic shapes to the right of the circle.
• Explain to the students that there are no items in the circle. Nothing there represents the number zero. Zero represents nothing at all.
• Move one magnetic shape into the circle, then write the number 1 above the circle. Have the students repeat, "one."
• Add another magnetic shape into the circle. Count one, two. Erase the 1 and write 2. Have the students repeat, "one, two."
• Repeat until all 10 magnetic shapes are in the circle, changing the number at the top of to reflect the number of items in the circle.
• Use your index finger to count all 10 magnetic shapes in the circle.

### Guided Practice/Interactive Modeling (10 minutes)

• Each student should have a piece of construction paper and glue.
• Each student should have 55 beads, buttons, or foam shapes.
• Model the upcoming activity on the whiteboard using magnetic shapes.
• Make a list on the board: 1-10. Have the students copy you as you place the correct amount of items next to each number.
• Below is an example how the students' work should look. Each asterisk represents a bead, button, or foam shape.
``````1 *
2 **
3 ***
4 ****

6 ******
7 *******
8 ********

## Review

### Assessment (10 minutes)

• Conduct mini-conferences with the students individually at your desk.
• Give them each a random amount of objects and ask them to use their index finger to count the items aloud.
