Have you ever wondered what it is like to count in a different language? Well today we as a class are going to find out!
- The teacher will be in the front of the classroom with the students around her.
- The teacher will begin by showing the first poster with the number on it.
- Underneath the English word zero there will also be the Spanish word for zero. Example: Zero-Cero MI-Visual/Spatial.
- The teacher will say the word Cero sounding each syllable out.
- The students will then repeat after the teacher. MI-Verbal.
- The teacher will do this procedure for each number 0-10.
- After all ten numbers have been taught, the teacher will assign each student or group of students a number from 0-10. That child or group of children are responsible for making a page for the Spanish book of numbers. MI- Visual/Spatial
- After the students are finished, the teacher will collect the papers.
- The teacher will have the students compare and contrast between the two languages. Example: Comparison-Zero-Cero Contrast-Five-Cinco. MI-Mathematical/Logical
