I need 21 short (up to 200 words) lessons in Mathematics in English for students of 5-6 years. Try to find at least two ways of exploring these simple ideas. Similar lesson plans could be easily found in internet.
Examples attached.
Topics:
1. Make repeating patterns with found objects.
2. Copy flowing patterns made from curved and straight lines.
3. Draw repeating patterns of shapes.
4. Continue patterns with drawings.
5. Sort found objects and explain the basis for the classification used.
6. Sort objects to a classification supplied by the teacher, e.g. by colour, by shape, by texture.
7. Choose a useful, non-standard, unit when faced with measuring small lengths, e.g. their finger length.
8. Compare objects directly by placing them against each other to determine which is bigger, taller, heavier, etc.
9. Use ‘heavier than’ and ‘lighter than’ accurately to compare everyday objects.
10. Name the days of the week.
11. Use the terms morning and afternoon accurately.
12. Use prepositions of location accurately in relation to pictures and diagrams, e.g. ‘between’, ‘near’, ‘next to’, ‘forwards’, ‘towards’, ‘beside’, ‘in front of’, ‘behind’, ‘over’ and ‘under’.
13. Identify their left and right hands.
14. Identify the left and right of objects and spaces.
15. Turn left and right upon demand.
16. Use the terms ‘likely’, ‘unlikely’, ‘probably’, ‘might’, ‘more likely’, ‘less likely’, ‘certain’, ‘uncertain’, ‘impossible’, ‘possible’, accurately to describe common events.
17. Read the numbers 1 – 20 – at least. (Possibly extend to 100)
18. Sequence the numbers 1 – 20 from scrambled order.
19. Draw diagrams to represent statements like 4 groups of 3.
20. Use the signs =, <, > between introduced concrete, or image objects, and then for numerical quantities.
21. Share sets of objects into equal groups, of the order 36 objects, shared into 6 equal groups.
