Math With Bears
Need extra help for EL students? Try the Very Hungry Addition pre-lesson.
Students will be able to complete addition and subtraction problems.
- Tell students that today we're going to read Bears on Wheels.
- Tell them to watch for number words. Ask students to see if they can do the simple addition problems that come up while reading the book.
- Teach number names by creating a poster. Tell the class to repeat after you as you write the number and their names (i.e. 11, eleven) from 1-20.
- Seat students in a circle and practice counting forward and backward from 1-20 as you pass a ball or other item around the circle.
