The instructional resources below, ideal for at-home learning, are designed to help students build understanding of numbers and how objects are alike or different. Keep checking back for new resources posted each week!
Activity 1: My Number Story
This project uses a fall theme to build an understanding of numbers from 1 to 5. Read the storybook aloud and have your child follow along. Have your child count the dots next to each number word to verify that the dots illustrate each number. Use dried beans to help count.
Your child can complete the pages by drawing a picture to illustrate each set of objects. Discuss how the objects will illustrate the fall theme. Once the pages have been completed, suggest that their book can be finished by drawing a picture on the storybook cover. Encourage your child to draw a picture that tells about the story.
Print the pages of the Student sheet and fold them in half to make a storybook. Have your child write their work on the printed pages.
Extend the Lesson
What are some objects you might see in the fall? (Acorns would be one example.) Make a list of them. Then think of a number from 1 to 5 and, using plain paper and crayons (or color pencils), draw that number of one of the fall objects on your list. Repeat with a different number and a different object.
