Lesson details

Key learning points

  1. Revisit counting out or 'giving' a number of things from a larger group, not just counting the number there are.
  2. Focus on the stopping number which gives the cardinal value.
  3. Start counting at a number other than one and stop at a given number e.g. we can count from 5 to 8.

Common misconception

Unnecessarily re-counting all objects in a group rather than counting on from an existing amount.

Repeat the key sentence, 'we start our count at ___ and we count ___'.

Keywords

  • Count out - When you take an object or objects from a set and count them you count them out.

  • How many - You ask how many when you want to know the number in a set or group.

  • Group - A group is a collection of objects or images.

Children need lots of opportunities to manipulate countable objects. Prior to the lesson, gather the countable objects displayed in the slides for children to explore with you throughout the lesson.
