4. Counting and Sets Lesson


Ages: 3+

Goal:
This lesson plan uses a combination of speech and kinesthetic movement to:
1. Learn to count;
2. Learn how groups of numbers form sets.

Preparation:
Provide space to move across the room; the front of the classroom works. Outdoors or a recreation room has more open space.

Method:
Teacher stands to one side and counts along with each student. One student at a time moves across the room.

Each student counts to 8 as they do 8 gallops across the room. One count per gallop.

Then, the next student begins, counting to 8 while doing the 8 gallops.

Any quantity of steps can be substituted, but keep one count per gallop.

Alternately, more than one student can do the sequence simultaneously, but to be less confusing, one at a time is a good starting place.

For more advanced students count to a higher number using another rhythmic motor skill, such as marching (each step one count), skipping (each skip one count), or slides (each slide one count).

Later, learn about sets kinesthetically, by doing a set of 4 gallops and 4 marches, or other simple combinations of gross motor skills.
