Title: Introduction to Number Notation

Objective: - To introduce nursery 1 students to number notation - To help students recognize and identify numbers from 1 to 10 - To develop basic counting skills

Materials: - Number flashcards (1-10) - Whiteboard or chart paper - Markers or colored pencils - Counting objects (e.g., blocks, toys, or stickers) - Worksheets or coloring pages with numbers 1-10


  1. Introduction (5 minutes):
    • Greet the students and gather them in a circle.
    • Show the number flashcards one by one, from 1 to 10, and ask the students to repeat each number after you.
    • Encourage students to count along with you as you display the flashcards.
  2. Number Recognition Activity (10 minutes):
    • Distribute the number flashcards to the students.
    • Ask the students to hold up the correct flashcard when you call out a number.
    • Repeat this activity a few times, gradually increasing the speed to challenge the students.
  3. Counting Objects (10 minutes):
    • Give each student a small set of counting objects (e.g., blocks, toys, or stickers).
    • Instruct the students to count the objects and place them in a line on their desk.
    • Walk around the classroom, providing assistance and encouragement as needed.
  4. Number Formation (10 minutes):
    • Write the numbers 1 to 10 on the whiteboard or chart paper.
    • Demonstrate how to form each number, emphasizing the correct stroke order.
    • Have the students practice writing each number on their own mini whiteboards or on worksheets.
  5. Coloring Activity (10 minutes):

    • Ask a few students to share their favorite part of the lesson or something new they learned.
    • Thank the students for their participation and enthusiasm.

Extension Activities (optional): - Play a number recognition game using flashcards or a number chart. - Create a number line on the classroom wall and have students place stickers or drawings of objects next to each number. - Use counting songs or rhymes to reinforce number recognition and counting skills.

Assessment: - Observe students’ participation and engagement during the activities. - Check students’ ability to recognize and identify numbers during the number recognition activity. - Assess students’ number formation skills during the writing practice. - Review completed worksheets or coloring pages for accuracy and understanding.
