This lesson is on teaching counting. Preschoolers need to learn how to count at a young age and before they go to kindergarten.


Students will learn:
To count from 1 to 10
To continue counting each group of 10
To count objects in a group
To identify numbers

Materials Needed

You also need charts for each group of ten numbers.

The first chart should have

1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10.

Under each number, you need to draw objects that represent each number.

Objects in the classroom for students to count.


When you work with students, you can start with a small group of numbers such as:

1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10.

You can write the numbers on a chart and point to the numbers as they count. You need to draw objects under each number that represent each number.

After they have learned to count to ten, then you can teach them to count the next ten and so on up to 100.

You can also teach students to count by gathering a group of objects and having them count the objects in the group. You can vary each group.


You can keep a record of how far each student can count. This will help you to know which students need more work in counting.
