7. Dividing 15 into Sets of 5


This kinesthetic lesson is for learning about the quantity of 15 and the way it can be divided into 3 sets of 5.

Age: 1st or 2nd grade and older learning disabled students.

For: Teachers for the benefit of students.

Skills learned:
Quantity of 15, set of 5, counting by 5s to 15.

Introduction: If working in the regular classroom, clear floor space for students to move across the room. Ideally, divide the class into groups of 15 students.

One group of 15 students will be active and the remaining students will watch and then take a turn next.

Sets of 5

1. Working with the first group of 15 students, give each a number from 1 to 15 to remember.

2. Have the students line up across the front of the room in order of 1 to 15 and beginning at 1 each say their number out loud one at a time. Then have students repeat counting 1 to 15 and this time have the students that are sitting out join in the counting 1 to 15. This procedure can be repeated as often as you choose.

3. Still working with the 15 students make 3 sets of 5 with the students by having 1, 2, 3, 4 and 5 join hands; 6, 7, 8, 9 and 10 join hands; and 11, 12, 13, 14, and 15 join hands.

4. Tell the class that the students with partners have made a set of 5.

5. Ask the class to count the number of sets. The answer should be 3.

6. Have the 15 students line up across the room still holding hands with their partners, so that you still have 3 sets of 5 students each.

7. Teacher walks along the line and points to each set saying 5, 10, 15.

8. Now the teacher repeats the walk and all students say 5, 10, 15.

9. Repeat this game as often as needed.
