# Primary 1 Mathematics Lesson Plan: Week 2

This Primary 1 Mathematics/Numeracy lesson plan uses a large variety of activities. If followed carefully, it will keep the pupils interested, motivated and will support effective learning in a structured way. These methods in this lesson plan are designed to involve pupils in their learning and give them the opportunity to learn from each other.

During the lesson, walk round the classroom and ask questions to see if the pupils clearly understand what you have taught them. If not, help them to understand by explaining the idea to them again, or asking other pupils to help them. You may need to use some different examples of the idea.

**Sorting shapes**

Primary 1 Mathematics Learning outcomes

By the end of the lesson, most pupils will be able to:

Count from 1— 5.

Know and identify squares,

rectangles, triangles and circles.

Primary 1 Mathematics Teaching aids

Before the lesson: Have ready a pile of counters and number cards 1— 5. Cut out a square, rectangle, circle and triangle for each pupil. Cut out one large circle, square, triangle and one large rectangle. Write the words ‘circle’, ‘square’, ‘triangle’ and ‘rectangle’ to label each shape and display them in the corners of the classroom.

**Counting**

By the end of the lesson, most pupils will be able to:

Count from 1— 5.

Sort similar shapes.

Primary 1 Mathematics Teaching aids

Before the lesson: Have ready number cards 1— 5. Have ready enough counters for each pupil to have five each. Prepare sets of cut-out squares, rectangles, triangles and circles for each group – as many as possible but at least 10 shapes in each set. They do not have to be the same size.

**Counting sides and corners on a shape**

Primary 1 Mathematics Learning outcomes

By the end of the lesson, most pupils will be able to:

Order numbers from 1— 5.

Identify the number of sides and corners on different shapes.

Primary 1 Mathematics Teaching aids

Before the lesson: Have ready number cards from 1— 5 and 20 counters for each group. Have ready the cut-out shapes from Day 1. Write the words ‘side’ and ‘corner’

on the chalkboard.

**Drawing and labelling shapes**

Draw squares, rectangles, triangles and circles.

Know the words square, rectangle, triangle and circle.

Primary 1 Mathematics Teaching aids

Before the lesson:

Draw a square, rectangle, triangle and circle on the chalkboard. Write the name next to each shape.

**Working with shapes**

Primary 1 Mathematics Learning outcomes

By the end of the lesson, most pupils will be able to:

Recognise numbers 1— 5.

Identify and use shapes confidently.

Primary 1 Mathematics Teaching aids

Before the lesson: Have as many squares, rectangles, triangles and circles of different sizes cut out as possible. There should be at least one of each shape for each pupil. Draw a simple picture on the chalkboard using just these shapes, such as a car. Next to your drawing, write how many of each shape you have used.
