Mathematical Thinking (MTD1, MTD2) Note

LITTLE OR BIG?

Materials (a variety of manipulative objects).

Encourage students to explore objects and use vocabulary to classify as big or little. Instead of actually measuring the objects and classifying them, encourage students to use vocabulary similar to the book, e.g., “The button is littler than the star, but bigger than the marble.”

HAND CUTOUTS

Materials (construction paper, markers/pencils/crayons, safety scissors)

Planning Lessons

I would love to create lessons that other Pre-K teachers find truly useful. What performance standards would you like to see more of on these lessons?
