Lesson details

Key learning points

  1. Revisit the idea of one more than as the next number.
  2. Use manipulatives and stem sentences to deepen understanding the next number after a given number is one more.
  3. Answer questions such as 'What is the next number after 8 when counting?'

Common misconception

Pupils may start counting on the number given and not recognise that the next number is one more.

Model the counting on and highlight the next number alongside the manipulatives. Give opportunities for pupils to add in one more to a set.

Keywords

  • One more than - One more than is when there is a greater amount by one or another item in the set.

  • Next number - When counting, the next number is the one that we say after a given number.

Make this lesson as practical as possible. Select familiar representations and manipulatives so that the pupils link one more and counting to work they have done before on numbers to 10.
