Content/Topic: Counting and representing numbers up to 20

Time: 45 min

Desired Results

Lesson Background:

Students will have already listened to The Very Hungry Caterpillar and identified the key concepts of the story. They will then complete a worksheet with simple counting problems on them related to the story.

Curriculum Standards: This lesson corresponds to standard

Objectives:

- Students will be able to use the elements from the story to do counting problems related to The Very Hungry Caterpillar

- Students will be able to make a picture of The Very Hungry Caterpillar using their hands and paint and be able to count how many legs

Procedure ( Learning Plan)

Rationale:

The students have been learning their numbers and by completing worksheets that have them count things such as how many strawberries the caterpillar ate in the story, it allows them to access their background knowledge and apply their counting skills at the same time.

Materials:

- math worksheets, paints, paper, The Very Hungry Caterpillar book

Step by Step Procedure:

1. The class will begin as a group and the teacher will ask the students if they remember what types of food the caterpillar ate each day.

2. The teacher will then get out the book and the students will count with the teacher how many types of fruits and vegetables he ate on certain days with the students counting out loud.

3. The students will then return to their seats where they will complete a worksheet that asks them to count pictures from the story such as how many strawberries or apples the caterpillar ate or how many wings the caterpillar had when he turned into a butterfly.

4. After the students have practiced their counting and writing the numbers, they will make a finger painting using their hands ( pictured above) to create their own caterpillar. They can use their hand print has many times as they want, but have to count the number of legs that their caterpillar has when they are finished and write the number.
