## Learning Objectives

Students will be able to identify their home phone numbers.

## Lesson

### Introduction (10 minutes)

• Ask students if they have ever used a telephone, and then ask if they know their home telephone numbers.
• Explain that a phone is a device that can be used to contact family and friends to keep in touch.
• Tell the students that a phone can also be used in case of an emergency.
• Inform your students that today they will learn their home telephone numbers, which give them access to their parents or guardians in case they are ever in trouble.

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

• Show the students the numbers 0 through 9 on flashcards out of numeric order.
• Have the students call out the numbers collectively as a group.
• Ensure that all students are able to master the numbers before proceeding.
• Show the students a touch-tone phone.
• Inform the students that a telephone number is made up of 10 numbers.
• Inform the students that the first three numbers are the area code, which distinguishes a geographic area.
• Tell the students that the last 7 numbers of their home telephone numbers identify the unique phone number that belongs to their families.
• Write a phone number on the whiteboard.
• Have a student come to the front of the room and dial the phone number on the touch-tone phone.

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

• Provide each student with the My Phone Number worksheet.
• Call out various phone numbers, and have the students practice dialing on their worksheets.
• Next, provide each student with their home numbers written on a slip of paper.
• Have each student write his number on his worksheet.
• Check to make sure the phone number is copied correctly.

### Independent Working Time (10 minutes)

• Have the students practice dialing their home phone numbers on their worksheets.
• Instruct them to work in pairs and exchange phone numbers with a classmate.

## Extend

### Differentiation

• Enrichment: Encourage your students to record the phone numbers of all their friends in the classroom.
• Support: Give the students a toy phone to make the activity more realistic and meaningful. Alternatively, provide phone numbers without the area code, and add the area code once the 7 digit number has been mastered.

## Review

### Assessment (10 minutes)

• Conference with each student, and ask him to recite his phone number.

### Review and Closing (10 minutes)

• Have the students recite a phone number from the whiteboard.
• Ask a volunteer to come up and press the numbers on the touch-tone phone.
