    Procedure: Place a certain amount of items on a table and ask the child to count them. Ask the child to choose the card that has the same number as the amount of items they have.
    Evaluation:Notice which numbers the child can identify and which numbers the child needs help with.

  • Numbers
    Title: Finding numbers in our world
    Method: Observation
    Skill: Recognizing symbols as numbers instead of letters
    Materials: Child and the world around them

    Skill: The child can identify a shape and recreate it using different materials.
    Materials: Picture of a shape and molding material
    Procedure: Show the child a picture of a shape. Ask them to name the shape and to recreate it using the modeling material.
    Evaluation: Notice if the child identifies the shape and if they are able to recreate it.
