Lesson details

Key learning points

  1. Count a set of 10 objects reliably.
  2. Develop fluency in counting and securing the cardinality principle and the stable order principle.
  3. Revisit and secure understanding of how the number tells the quantity of a group.

Common misconception

Children may not be secure with the principles of counting.

Encourage any and all opportunities to count small collections of objects considering ways in which to count efficiently. Model counting using one-to-one principles and strategies such as organising collections to support counting all.

Keywords

  • Count - Saying the numbers in order to find the total amount in a set.

  • Number - A count, measurement or idea of a value.

  • Numeral - A numeral is a symbol or name that stands for a number.

  • Number name - A number word is the word we say for that number, so the number word for 2 is two.

It is important that children are secure with the one-to-one principle, stable order principle, cardinal principle, abstraction principle and the order irrelevance principle through counting and checking within a variety of practical contexts.
