# Kindergarten One To One Correspondence Lesson Plan Example (Math)

## Topic: One to one correspondence

### Objectives & Outcomes

• By the end of this activity, pre-schoolers will be able to match one object with one corresponding picture.

### Materials

• Large picture cards showing various objects (e.g. cat, dog, ball, pencil)
• Small objects representing each of the picture cards

### Warm-up

• Show the pre-schoolers the small objects and ask them to identify which object each one represents.
• Encourage the pre-schoolers to use verbal cues such as "this is a cat, because it looks like the cat picture" to identify the objects.

### Direct Instruction

• Introduce the concept of one to one correspondence, which means that there is one small object for each large object.
• Show the pre-schoolers how to match each small object with its corresponding large object.
• Repeat the activity several times, encouraging the pre-schoolers to use verbal cues such as "this is a cat, because it looks like the cat picture" to identify the objects.

### Guided Practice

• Give the pre-schoolers a small set of objects and have them work with a partner to match the objects.
• Encourage the pre-schoolers to use verbal cues to identify the objects.

### Independent Practice

• Give the pre-schoolers a larger set of objects and have them work on their own to match the objects.
• Encourage the pre-schoolers to use verbal cues and physical gestures (e.g. pointing) to identify the objects.

### Closure

• Have the pre-schoolers share what they have learned about one to one correspondence by having them point to and name each object in turn.
• Ask the pre-schoolers to share what they enjoyed about the activity and remind them that they can continue to practice one to one correspondence at home.

### Assessment

• Observe the pre-schoolers as they complete the one to one correspondence activity and provide feedback on their ability to identify and name each object.
• Have the pre-schoolers complete a one to one correspondence worksheet where they identify and name each object in turn.
