I am student teacher in a kindergarten/first grade special education class, and my students are struggling with big/small and more/less. This is helpful when we are working on touch math, and they need it for the CAPA. Our theme this week is Spring so I thought a caterpillar was appropriate. I just made a word document with the numbers in circles, colored and cut them, used a hole punch and white yarn to attach the numbers then slapped it on a 12x18 in piece of construction paper. I am going to make the small/big/less/more words stand out more when I do this with my students tomorrow. My plan is to print, cut, and paste onto a red paper so it is more visual. I am also going to make the word big much larger than the word small. I always do my projects myself the day before to see where any kinks may be so I can fix them before I work with my students. It also helps me plan what order would be the easiest for my students to complete it in, and where they may need more help. I’ll post the results tomorrow!
Here are links to what I created for this lesson :)
