Teaching Ordinal Numbers_Lesson 2

Objectives:

  • Assessing of prior knowledge ( retention on what was taught in lesson 1)
  • Applying of concept in daily home routines

Time needed (25 minutes total):

  • 5 minutes to complete race tray and writing of routines
  • 10 minutes for race game as C wanted to replay it many times
  • 10 minutes to recap theory, reading of routines, and writing of word

Materials needed (assessing of prior knowledge):

Jpeg

  • Mega blocks created in Lesson 1
  • A pair of scissors
  • Red tape
  • Unused cutlery tray holder
  • 3 to 5 toy cars that can fit in the cutlery tray holder

Instructions:

  • Stick the red tape on the cutlery tray holder so that it resembles the road.

Lesson time: 

  1. Revised the concepts using the mega blocks with C.
  2. Showed him the toy cars and got him to place them in any order of position 1 to 5.
  3. Conduct the one finger push race (I coined this term. Basically I’m trying to build on his finger strength which I hope will assist in his penmanship).

End of lesson for objective 1.

Materials needed (applying of concept in daily home routines):

  • Easel stand (bought ours from Ikea)
  • Coloured-markers for writing (also from Ikea)
  • Note: We’ve been using this easel stand for two years. We use it for teaching, writing of routines, drawing, etc. I used to write the daily routines and draw empty square box at each routine so that C can put a tick √ to indicate when a routine is completed. This visual cue seems to make him more aware and involved. 

Lesson time:

Daily routines written on our easel board

  1. Showed C the board.
  2. Recap on ‘Ordinal numbers’. C read the definition with prompts by me if he couldn’t read any words.
  3. Explained to him that we’re changing our written routines to begin with ordinal numbers .
  4. Got him involved by reading the routines and filling in the second routine.
  5. Used the easel as a visual reminder on what we need to do before heading out.

End of lesson 2.
