Ideas for lesson plans related to numbers

During circle time:

Games with dice

Use 2 dice (preferably a red and a blue one), 2 cards and some beads of thesame size. Divide the group in two halves: One group will be the blue dice and

one the red. Let the children take turns in throwing the dice. The numbershowing on the dice indicates the amount of beads they can add to the cord.

You can play this game the other way around as well: The cord will be full of beads to

start off with, the amount showing on the dice will indicate how many beads should be

removed. The first group to empty the cord is the winner

Number games

You will need:

Flashcards with objects and numbers (see downloads section) Counting materials (e.g. shells, beads, chips, pen caps, buttons)

Small cords

Discuss the numbers with the children. Put a number on a mat, and have thechildren place the numbers from 0 through 10 in the correct order. Now, use the

flashcards with numbers. Discuss these with the children. Have the childrenmatch the "number" objects with the correct numbers. This is a good exercise to

see who already knows the number, who knows the correct order, who can

relate the objects to the numbers etc.

Have the children place the numbers 0 through 10 in the correct order on a mat(This does not have to be a circle time activity, it can also be done individually).When the child is already familiar with the correct order, have him or her placethe numbers in random order to make it more difficult. Now, let the child place

the correct amount of e.g. beads under the cards with the numbers. When theyare ready, you can also have them place the correct object card with the

number cards. You can increase difficulty even more by asking the student to"add two more", or "three less" to one of the piles.

Have a child place the numbers 0 through 10 in the correct order on a mat.When the child is already familiar with the correct order, have him or her place

the numbers in random order to make it more difficult. Let them add the number

in e.g. beads to the correct number. After this, ask them to add 2 more to eachnumber (10 becomes 12, 4 becomes 6). They can use stamps to create the

same number, and have them place it with the number card.

Chair count

Put some chairs behind each other. Call out one of the children and have him or her sitdown on the number you say (e.g. "Please sit down on chair number 3"). Continue untilall chairs are done

Counting games

Let the children count the number of girls and boys in the classroom. Are theremore boys than girls or not?

Let the children count the number of laced shoes in the classroom, the number

of velcro shoes etc.

How many children have blonde hair, and how many children have brown hair? Whichgroup is larger
