Lesson Outline:

  1. Introduction (5 minutes):
    • Gather the children in a circle and introduce yourself.
    • Show the number flashcards and ask if anyone recognizes any numbers.
    • Explain that today, they will learn about numbers 1-10 and how to count objects.
  2. Number Recognition (10 minutes):
    • Show the number flashcards one by one, starting from 1 and going up to 10.
    • Encourage children to repeat the numbers after you.
    • Use the video resource on number recognition to reinforce learning.
    • Distribute the number recognition worksheet for children to practice identifying numbers.
  3. Counting Objects (15 minutes):
    • Introduce the concept of counting by explaining that we can count objects to find out how many there are.
    • Show a small group of objects (e.g., 3 blocks) and count them together.
    • Use the video resource on counting objects to reinforce learning.
    • Distribute counting objects worksheets for children to practice counting.
  4. Questioning (5 minutes):
    • Ask questions to assess understanding:
      • “Can you show me the number 5 on the flashcards?”
      • “How many blocks are there?”
      • “What number comes after 3?”
    • Provide positive reinforcement and guidance as needed.
  5. Assessment (10 minutes):
    • Conduct a simple assessment by showing random number flashcards and asking children to identify them.
    • Observe their ability to count objects accurately.
    • Provide individual feedback and support as necessary.
  6. Differentiation (5 minutes):
    • For children who need additional support, provide extra practice with flashcards and worksheets.
    • For children who are more advanced, challenge them to count objects beyond 10 or introduce simple addition using objects.
  7. Plenary (5 minutes):
    • Recap the lesson by asking children to share one thing they learned about numbers today.
    • Encourage them to practice counting and recognizing numbers at home.
    • Thank the children for their participation and enthusiasm.

Note: Adapt the lesson plan as needed to suit the specific needs and abilities of the children in your class.
