## Lesson details

### Key learning points

- Finding one more is the same as adding 1. Finding one less is the same as subtracting 1
- Numbers that are one more or one less than each other have a difference of one.

### Common misconception

The language of one more or one less than can confuse children, so 55 is one more than ? may be interpreted as 55 plus 1

Encourage children to articulate and explain in full sentences alongside number lines to support the understanding of the different ways to articulate the concept. Use stem sentences to support with this and display them around the classroom.
