Numbers and Counting: MINNEMAST Coordinated Mathematics - Science Series, Unit 9.
Blair, Kay W.; Thomson, Polly V.
This volume is the ninth in a series of 29 coordinated MINNEMAST units in mathematics and science for kindergarten and the primary grades. Intended for use by first-grade teachers, this unit guide provides a summary and overview of the unit, a list of materials needed, and descriptions of four groups of lessons. The purposes and procedures for each activity are discussed. Examples of questions and discussion topics are given, and in several cases ditto masters, stories for reading aloud, and other instructional materials are included in the book. The lessons in this volume are organized into four sections: (1) one-to-one correspondence, (2) tallying, counting, and reading numerals from 0 to 20, (3) writing numerals and counting practice, and (4) ordering and the order-signs. A variety of topics related to these threads is included; among these are estimation of large numbers and names for numbers in other languages. (SD)
