Phase: | Before/Engage |
Activity: | Tell students that today we will skip count by the number 4. Ask students if 4 is an even number. Remind them that since 4 is an even number and we are adding 4 to each number that we say, then all the numbers that we will say will be even. Have the numbers 4, 8, 12, 16, 20, 24, 28, 32, 36, 40, 44, 48, 52, 56, 60, 64, 68, 72, 76, 80, 84, 88, 92, 96, 100 on the front board or on chart paper for students to see while counting aloud by 4s to 100 with students. Tell the students that now we will skip count by 4s while singing and moving. Students will watch the video Counting by Fours Song Next, students will repeat the pattern aloud, "4 is an even number and counting by 4 will result in all even numbers". Have students watch the video again while singing/moving along with the video. The students will count by fours together. Remember to erase the front board or cover the chart paper. On a clean sheet of paper, the student will write the whole numbers starting at the number 4 and skip count by 4s to 100. |
Assessment Strategies: | The student will count by fours. On a clean sheet of paper, the student will write the whole numbers starting at the number four and skip count by fours to one hundred. The teacher will assess students' paper for correct skip counting by 4s. |
Advanced Preparation: | Have the numbers 4, 8, 12, 16, 20, 24, 28, 32, 36, 40, 44, 48, 52, 56, 60, 64, 68, 72, 76, 80, 84, 88, 92, 96, 100 on the front board or on chart paper for students to see while counting aloud by 4s to 100 with students. Check to make sure the technology device and the Internet is working. |
Variation Tips (optional): | You may allow the students to view, sing, and/or move with the video multiple times prior to the assessment. |
