1. Topic-
 Using 5 as a Benchmark Activity #2 see photocopy attached page 165 MATHFOCUS Compare Sets to 5: Main Circle Activity
2. Content-
 Content: Strand - Number. Developing Number Sense. Subject Matter: Numbers 0 to 5. 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 one-to-one 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 (part-part-whole). - 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-

 Variation p. 165.

D. Independent Practice-

 Center Activities: photocopy p. 157 Go through these with students so they understand how to do the activities. -Sets of Fish -Rolling Numbers -Shake and Spill

F. Checking for understanding-

 1. Observation during Introduction, Development & Practice Unit 2 Checklist photocopy p. 378 2.Observation during Independent Practice Activities 3.Conversation for Independent Assessment - photocopy page 379

G. Closure-

 Read Story 5 Little Monkeys with Nothing to Do book coming from Instructional Resources this week. (Discuss number in relation to lesson)
7. Evaluation-
 Evaluate as in Checking for Understanding (above) and also Section B page 159 Lesson 3 of this unit "Focus on Visuaizing: Main Circle Activity: Five Towers, text lesson page 172). If possible locate the book On Mother's Lap and do lesson and assessments text page 164.
