Students should be relaxed, engaged, and motivated to learn. Instructional Objectives: The students should be active participants while performing the behavior. Motivation: Making math fun! Incorporating something special to help them count change. Jelly beans, popcorn, (some kind of treat). Explaining how counting can be useful in everyday life.

Explain the instruction and dismiss the class to work independently. This is a great time to walk about and formally assess the students independently.12. Hand out the second worksheet for homework.13. Explain that we will continue to build on this lesson in the days to follow.14. A summative assessment will be given at the end of the week.
