Lesson details

Key learning points

  1. Secure understanding of carrying on the count from any number to 20.
  2. Represent counting on from a number using maniulatives, drawing pictures and matching number cards.
  3. Listening to sounds and counting on.

Common misconception

Missing out numbers in the count or not being able to start the count if not at 1.

Give a three number count in to establish a pattern before asking children to join in so 7, 8, 9 given before the children say 10.

Keywords

  • Count on - Continue the count from a given number.

  • Next number - The number that comes next in the count.

This lesson can be taught with the slides as teacher notes and you may decide not to show them to pupils. Plan to rehearse the parts of the count where your pupils are less confident. Give three numbers to continue the pattern then cut it down.
