Today was lesson 3 of our Kindergarten Concept Groups. The Kindergarten teacher requested an activity that reinforced the concepts long and short since these were part of her math lesson for this week. We did the Question Chain Activity which is posted on the vocabulary page. It turned out to be a good choice because the counselor was taken out for an emergency and the college student had to pinch hit. That would’ve been a big problem with some of the other activities. Fortunately it’s an easy activity to pick up on. I find it amazing that some of the most simple props can be quite motivating. The kindergarten students really enjoy putting the links together and get into the competition of having the longer chain. We also pointed out the chains that were equal or the same amount. For the final concept they ‘separated” them. That is a concept that is frequently missed when we do our first BOEHM testing in the Fall.
