I want to send a HUGE shoutout, thank you to my friend Kim Adsit. She swooped in for the rescue with her All About Numbers and it's been a H.I.T!
Before working with her unit, I had my kiddos explore clocks, dominoes, and pennies. In addition to our explorations, we discussed tally marks (attendance) and ordinal numbers (line-up strategies).
I began each lesson with a counting book. Then we created a chart whole group. The kiddos were able to follow-up with their own reproducible books.
Early finishers were given playdough numbers created by Leslie from Kindergarten Works. My kinders went nuts!!!
