1 Teacher Directed activity

Activity: Presenting

I will show numbers and practise counting with the children.  We will use fruit loops and I will show them how to place the fruit loops on number mats I have created.  They will help me count the fruit loops on the mats.  

2 Independent Practice

Activity: Exploring

The children will explore counting using individual counters and counting mats to reinforce concepts just taught in circle time.

3 Wrap up and Extention

The children will independently work at centers using technology to reinforce the math skills we have been learning and promote upper level skills of addition and subtraction.
