Vocabulary:
one (1), two (2), three (3), four (4), five (5), more, fewer, howm
many 


3. Goals: Aims/Outcomes

Strand: Number
COMPARE SETS TO 5.
Allignment to Program of Studies:
General Outcome:
Develop number sense.
Specific Outcomes
It is expected that students will:
1. Say the number sequence 1 to 10 by 1s, starting
anywhere from 1 to 10 and from 10 to 1.
2. Subitize (recognize at a glance) and name familiar
arrangements of 1 to 5 objects or dots.
3. Relate a numeral, 1 to 10, to its respective
quantity.
4. Represent and describe numbers 2 to 10,
concretely and pictorially.
5. Compare quantities 1 to 10, using onetoone
correspondence.
FOCUS IN THIS LESSON IS NUMBERS 0 TO 5. 


4. Objectives

1.
 Name the number that comes after a given number.
 Name the number that comes before a given number.
 Recite number names from a given number to a stated number (forward
"“ one to five,
backward "“ five to one), using visual aids.
2.
 Look briefly at a given familiar arrangement of 1 to 5 objects
or dots, and identify the number
represented without counting.
 Identify the number represented by a given dot arrangement on
a five frame.
3.
 Construct a set of objects corresponding to a given numeral.
 Name the number for a given set of objects.
 Hold up the appropriate number of fingers for a given numeral.
 Match numerals with their given pictorial representations.
4.
 Partition a given quantity into two parts, using fingers, counters
or other objects, and identify
the number of objects in each part (partpartwhole).
 Show a given number as two parts, using pictures, and name the
number of objects in each part.
5.
 Construct a set to show more than, fewer than or as many as a
given set.
 Compare two given sets through direct comparison; and describe
the sets, using words such as
more, fewer, as many as or the same number. 


5. Materials and Aids

Poster 3A: Pet Store Window
Large color block cubes
Scholastic half pint activity cards
 Internet  NCTM Illuminations Five Frame SMARTboard Activity (if
time) 


6. Procedures/Methods

A. Introduction
Display poster and ask students to describe what they see using
numbers (Mathfocus p. 165)



B. Development
1. Have students use large color cubes to represent the different
groups of animals / birds in the poster and compare the smaller sets
to the group of 5 dogs.
2. Help students develop number sense and better understand the relative
size of different quantities. Ask specific questions (see photocopy
p. 165).
3.Invite students to use reasoning to think of a question abut the
five puppies. The answer to the question must include a number. 


C. Practice

D. Independent Practice
