When children can count items once and in numerical order, they are ready to make small groups.
Read the story 12 Ways to Get to 11 by Eve Merriam to the class. Discuss how the author found so many ways to find the number eleven.
Organize students into small groups. Provide each group with a set of manipulatives and ask them to find various numbers of items.
Tell students that they will be making their own original sets. Ask them to put on their Crayola® Art Smocks and cover their work area with recycled newspaper.
Have students select a number between 1 and 10. Ask children to write their selected number on a sheet of white construction paper with a Crayola Crayon.
Provide students with Crayola Mini Stampers and have each child select an appealing design. Have students use Crayola Washable Tempera Paint to make the same number of stamp imprints as the numbers they chose in Step #4. Instruct students to use a crayon to draw a circle around this set of prints.
Asks students to select a second stamp and create the same number of imprints, using a different color paint if so desired. Encourage students to experiment with making rows, columns, and other arrangements of the same number. Use a crayon to circle each set.
Close the lesson by asking students why they created so many of the same set of a number. Use Crayola Dry Erase Markers to document student contributions on a classroom white board. Discuss their ideas.
Let's make something!
