Lesson Plan: Writing Numbers to 20

Subject: Mathematics Grade Level: Primary 1 (ages 5-6)

Introduction: - Begin the lesson by displaying a chart with numbers 1 to 20 written on it. - Engage the students in a discussion about numbers and their importance in our daily lives. - Show them examples of numbers in their environment (e.g., on clocks, calendars, price tags). - Explain that today, they will learn how to write numbers from 1 to 20.

Lesson Outline:

- Warm-up Activity (5 minutes):
- Play a counting game with the students, where they count aloud from 1 to 20 together.
- Use visual aids, such as flashcards or number charts, to reinforce the concept of counting.

- Introduction to Writing Numbers (10 minutes):
- Show a video resource that introduces the concept of writing numbers from 1 to 20.
- Use the video to explain the formation of each number and the correct way to write them.
- Pause the video at intervals to allow students to practice writing the numbers on their own.

- Guided Practice (15 minutes):
- Distribute worksheets with traceable numbers from 1 to 20.
- Demonstrate how to trace each number correctly, emphasizing proper formation.
- Provide individual assistance to students as they practice tracing the numbers.
- Encourage students to say the numbers aloud as they trace them.

- Independent Practice (10 minutes):
- Give each student a worksheet with blank spaces for writing numbers from 1 to 20.
- Instruct them to write the numbers independently, using the traceable numbers as a guide.
- Circulate the classroom to provide support and guidance as needed.

Questioning: - During the guided and independent practice, ask questions to assess students’ understanding: 1. What number comes after [a given number]? 2. Can you show me how to write the number [a given number]? 3. How many digits are in the number [a given number]? 4. Can you find the number [a given number] on the number chart?

Assessment: - Observe students’ participation and engagement during the lesson. - Evaluate their ability to correctly write numbers from 1 to 20 on the worksheets. - Use informal assessment techniques, such as questioning and observation, to gauge their understanding.

Differentiation: - For students who need additional support: - Provide extra practice worksheets with traceable numbers. - Pair them with a peer who can provide assistance during independent practice. - For students who grasp the concept quickly: - Challenge them to write numbers beyond 20 or in a different numeral system (e.g., Roman numerals).

Plenary: - Review the lesson by playing a number recognition game, where students identify numbers from 1 to 20. - Use a video resource that reinforces number recognition skills. - Allow students to share their achievements and any challenges they faced during the lesson.
