Comparing Groups to 20
Need extra help for EL students? Try the Number Number! pre-lesson.
Students will be able to write and compare numbers 11–20.
- Gather the class together for a read-aloud.
- Display Mimi's Book of Counting and ask the students how to count to 10. Have them count aloud with you.
- Read the book aloud. As you read, ask guiding questions such as: "What do you see on this page?" "How many __ ___ ___ ______ __ ___ ___ ______ are there?" "Can you count along with me?"
- Review number names for 0–10 in English with the students by listening to number songs, counting objects, or echo counting.
- Allow students to count in their home language (L1).
- Have students turn and talk to share their thinking with a partner.
- Review the concept of "How many?" by providing relevant examples (e.g., display a plate of carrot sticks or cookies and ask how many students see.)
