|Academic Learning Coach|
lluminations is a website from the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics. You'll find terrific lesson plans for pre-K through high school. This particular one uses buttons to teach the concepts of before, after, and between for lower elementary children. It also can be used as a review of ordinal and cardinal numbers. The lesson begins with students singing and playing London Bridge practicing using positional words. You’ll need to provide bags of buttons for the students to place on a 10 Strip activity sheet which you can print off from the site. Lots of suggestions are given on different ways to use the buttons for counting, and also for color recognition.
