## Lesson details

### Key learning points

- Adding one gives one more.
- Subtracting one gives one less.

### Common misconception

Children may struggle to count on from, or back from, a given number.

Encourage automaticity with the counting sequence through regular practice. At times, pause so that children need to predict the number that is one more/less. Initially, you may need to model silently counting from one through to the given number.

### Keywords

One more - The number after a given number is one more than it.

One less - The number before a given number is one less than it
