2. Content

Workbooks each student will have his or her own work book to with
math problems in it that they can write it.
BINS we have in classroom bins with little rubber toy animals and
bugs that the students can use to count and sort. 


3. Goals: Aims/Outcomes

1.Students will understand how to sort things into different categories.
2.Students will understand that they can manipulate outcomes.
3.Students will improve on their adding and subtracting skills. 


4. Objectives

1. Students will become knowledgeable of differences.
2. Students will feel as if they are teaching themselves.
3. Students will learn how to share. 


5. Materials and Aids

Student workbooks, pencils, erasers, and BINS. 


6. Procedures/Methods

A. Introduction
How many of us use our fingers to help do math? I know I do sometimes,
but today we are going to try and use something else to help us count
and sort! 


B. Development
All of the students will come meet me on the carpet and we will
all sit pretzel legged. I will have a BIN infront of me and show them
all of the cool different colored toy animals and bugs that are inside
of the BIN. I will also have my student workbook. I will walk them
through the assignment on page 1. 


C. Practice
The instructions tell me that I need to grab a handful little toys
and count out how many of them are RED BUTTERFLIES. I will reach into
the BIN and grab a handful of little animal/bug toys (I will only
grab so many that I can hold in one hand). I will place them on the
table next to me and start to look for RED BUTTERFLIES. I have found
that there are 3 RED BUTTERFLIES on my table. I will write down 3
next to #1 on page 1. I will continue on for the rest of the page. 


D. Independent Practice
1. Students will practice finding the little toys on their own.
2. Students will sort and count how many little toys they need.
3. Each student will write down their answers in their student workbooks. 


E. Accommodations (Differentiated Instruction)
1. If a student is colorblind, I will rewrite their workbook so
that the color of the objects will have nothing to do with the counting
and sorting.
2. I will look into each students file to make sure I meet their needs. 


F. Checking for understanding
1. I will pull students aside and work on this with them oneonone.
2. I will look through each students, student workbook to make sure
the numbers seem realistic.



G. Closure
1. This lesson will be a consistent plan for the classroom. Students
will work with their workbooks in math each day. There will be different
problems each day.
2. I will make sure each student fully understands the process of
each lesson before they move onto the next step in their student workbook.
