Cookie Count The lesson Cookie Count from Maths 300 was based on the book “The Doorbell Rang” so to begin the unit we read the book and acted out the story. I then put the children into groups and handed out the task cards “Cookies Count”. The children were given an amount of counters and they then followed the directions on the task card. They used whiteboards to document their learning. Some of the numbers had leftovers so that was challenging. To complete the unit of work we made our own books. I used the names of the children in my grade and used 24 cookies instead of 12. The children loved the activities. Heads and Legs I took photos of their answers and documented their learning. I asked them how they went about solving their problem. We then attempted the follow up lesson called Heads and Legs. We read the problem and the children used counters and match sticks as concrete material to make their animals. They had to decide how many roosters and cows were in the paddock. While I was documenting their learning the children were given other problems to solve using the same format but with different numbers. After we had shared our results the children were given a sheet where they could cut and paste the animals into the paddock. They then wrote their answers to one of the problems. When they had finished we used the computer software to extend the children’s knowledge and they played the Pigs and Chickens Game.
