Lesson details

Key learning points

  1. Secure understanding of counting principles explored so far (stable-order, one-to-one, cardinal).
  2. Know the importance of number rhymes in developing our number sense.

Common misconception

Inaccurate representation of the number rhymes.

Once again, ensure all children have access to countable objects to manipulate alongside the ideas within the slides.

Keywords

  • Represent - To represent something is to show it in a different way. A raindrop in the song can be represented with a cube or counter.

Children learn through repetition, so sing number rhymes throughout the day to help them become familiar with numbers and the patterns between them. Different rhymes will help develop different mathematical skills beyond those in this lesson.
