Lesson details

Key learning points

  1. Revisit number names to 10, and know the order of them will not change (stable-order principle).
  2. Know that we can start our verbal count from any given number within 10.

Common misconception

Saying number names out of order or missing a number name in the sequence.

Repeat the number names in the correct order, emphasising the correction made.

Keywords

  • Count - Count means to say the number names in order and to count a set to find out how many there are

  • One to ten - The number names one to ten are the first ten numbers in our counting system

  • Forwards - Counting forwards we say the numbers from smallest to largest

  • Backwards - Counting backwards we say the number from largest to smallest
