This lesson consists of vocabulary and grammar. It teaches the student to read and listen to numbers, the words the numbers correspond to(I made photocopies of the numbers and words for each student), singular and plural forms(using visual aids to explain the concept), and a grammar lesson explaining "I am", "I am not" and "we are", "we are not", using visual aids and recordings the students can listen to(I made photocopies of the sentences explaining this).
