If students understand, they can explain it in their own words. By the students talking and using their own language to make sense of learning, students are incorporating new information into prior knowledge (Phil Wilder, 2013 para 5).” In small groups, student will meet to discuss what items they counted at their homes. Show the pictures and explain what’s happening in each picture, how and why it needs to be counted. e.g. Mom counts my socks, so we know which one's mates have for my feet, or My dad counts how many times my older brother refuses to follow his directions – that’s why in this picture my dad looks upset, my brother loses part of his allowance that why in this picture my brother is so angry. Or my sister was baking cookies and needed four eggs. . In their small groups will have the opportunity to do dot-to-dot pictures numbers 1-20, they can choose items familiar to they to assist in the sequencing; like dinosaurs, cats, dogs, houses, hats anything that the student is familiar with so they’ll which number comes next in line; this can address logical mathematics learners and naturalist learning styles During this time, students will have the opportunity to switch out partners from the assigned one to ones of their choosing. If both students agree and if staff sees no problems.
We will be continuing with our learning centers, A-B-C mouse on the computers, art table, video and audio libraries. I will add to the list of learning activities; staff will read counting poems to students and a cloze activity__ potato, __potato, ___potato, ___!I made a batch of hot potatoes and dropped them on the floor! ___potato, ___potato, ___ potato, ___ I stomped them into mashed potatoes and plopped them on a plate. ___ potato, ___ potato can’t believe my eyes.

Day 3 - Students will flip with teachers if they evaluate themselves as a big old “5” and direct the activity the evaluated themselves as a five. The students that have the spatial learning modality will make a flip book using card stock drawing the needed number of items on each page, to take home for studying purposes. The bodily-kinesthetic & interpersonal will dig for buttons in the sand table; students will glue the buttons in groups of ten onto card stock. Verbal-linguistic & Intrapersonal will use dry-erase boards where the will draw ten items onto the boards turn it in and continue in the same manner for nine...
