Bunny Jump Day
This PreK-K lesson kit includes a PDF script that prepares students for storytelling, instructional videos and assessment guidelines for math and oral language. You’ll read lesson plans and watch videos that show how to prepare students to engage in storytelling. You’ll learn how to introduce the storyteller’s skills of voice, gesture, and facial expression so that students develop oral language skills while learning mathematics. And you’ll develop your own storytelling skills by following your script as you watch videos of Marcia Daft telling the story to students.
The math content standards addressed in this Toy Story include one-to-one correspondence, counting, cardinality, and conservation of number. Students will also story map, count and draw in 5-frames and 10-frames.
<!–Learn the storyteller's craft of creating voices, facial expressions, and gestures that bring a story to life. Then discover how to animate small toys and simple objects as you lead students in the telling of a story. As the storytelling unfolds, the mathematical concept that underlies the story is revealed. Students draw a map of the story's sequence of events to demonstrate their comprehension of both the story and the underlying number concepts.
Bunny Jump Day is used to introduce one-to-one correspondence, counting, cardinality, and conservation of number. Use this arts-integrated teaching strategy with your students and experience how storytelling powerfully develops children’s focus, cooperation, comprehension, and spatial reasoning.–>
