###### IEP GOAL WORKBOOKS No Goals Available

###### WORKSHEET PACKS No Worksheet Packs Available

###### 5 AND 1 INTERVENTIONS This 5-in-1 Math Worksheet Micro-Skill Differentiated Intervention Pack contains five scaffolded learning progression math worksheets for students with mild to moderate learning disabilities. These worksheets focus on multiplication array models with missing multiplicand, arrays models with a missing multiplier, array grids, number lines, and the foundations of multiplication (e.g., counting in groups).

Perfect for delivery by paraeducators, general education, and special education teachers requiring additional intervention materials targeting a specific skill within a learning progression.

IEP Goals - By (date), when given problems with numbers and counting up to 3, the student will learn to count to 3, improving counting and cardinality skills from 0/10 problems out of ten consecutive trials to 8/10 problems in ten consecutive trials.

RTI Smart Goal - By (date), when given problems with numbers and counting up to 3, the student will learn to count to 3, improving counting and cardinality skills from 0/10 problems out of ten consecutive trials to 8/10 problems in ten consecutive trials.

###### GAMES No Games Available

###### ACTIVITIES No Activities Available ### LESSON INSTRUCTION

###### INTRODUCTION
1. Display a ten frame model and ask students if they know what it is.
2. Explain that a ten frame model helps us count and show numbers.
3. Ask students to count the number of boxes in the ten frame model with you.
###### INSTRUCTION
1. Use counting objects to demonstrate how to place them on the ten frame model.
2. Ask students to count the number of objects on the ten frame model with you.
3. Write the number on the whiteboard.
4. Repeat with different numbers (up to 10).
###### GUIDED PRACTICE
1. Give each student a ten frame model and counting objects.
2. Ask students to fill their ten frame model with objects and count how many there are.
3. Ask students to share their answer with a partner and explain how they counted.

###### INDEPENDENT PRACTICE
1. Give each student a worksheet with ten frame models and objects.
2. Instruct students to count the number of objects on each ten frame model and write the number in the box below.
3. Monitor students' progress and provide support as needed.

###### HOMEWORK
1. Assign students to practice counting to 10 using ten frame models and objects at home.
2. Ask students to complete the homework sheet and discuss their understanding with parents.

###### EXIT TICKET
1. Provide each student with a blank ten frame model and counting objects.
2. Instruct students to fill their ten frame model with objects and write the number below.
3. Collect the ten frame models to assess students' understanding.

###### ASSESSMENT
1. Formative assessments will be conducted during the lesson to monitor students' understanding of counting to 10 using ten frame models.
2. The exit ticket and progress monitoring assessments will be used to determine students' mastery of the objective.

###### CLOSURE
1. Ask students to share one thing they learned about counting to 10 using ten frame models.
2. Review the vocabulary words "count," "ten frame," and "objects."
3. Encourage students to practice counting to 10 using ten frame models and objects at home.

###### EXTENSION
1. Students can practice counting to 20 using two ten frame models.
2. Students can use ten frame models to practice addition and subtraction within 10.
3. Students can create their own ten frame models using materials such as playdough or beads.
###### INTERVENTION
1. For students who struggle with counting, provide additional practice with counting objects and ten frame models.
2. For students who need extra support, provide a visual aid or diagram to help them understand the concept of ten frames.
3. For students who struggle with fine motor skills, provide larger and easier to grasp counting objects such as foam cubes or pom-poms.
###### VIDEOS

No Video Available ### TEACHING TIPS

1. Use colorful objects and visual aids to keep students engaged.
2. Encourage peer collaboration during guided practice for greater understanding.
3. Provide additional support for students struggling with fine motor skills. ### STUDENT MISCONCEPTIONS

1. Students may confuse ten frame models with simple addition or subtraction.
2. Some students may struggle with counting objects accurately on the ten frame.
3. Students may have difficulty recognizing the value of different amounts of objects on the ten frame model. ### STANDARD

##### Common Core Standard:

K.CC.A.1 Part 1 - Count to 10 by ones.
