# Recall one and two more or less than numbers to ten

I can recall known addition and subtraction facts within 10

## Lesson details

### Key learning points

- When we add one, we can see this as the number after in our count. We can think of this as one more.
- When we subtract one, we can see this as the number before in our count. We can think of this as one less.
- Adding two from an even/odd number, we can see this as the even/odd number after. We can think of this as two less.
- Subtracting two from an even/odd number, can be seen as the even/odd number before. We can think of this as two less.

### Common misconception

Children may resort to counting strategies to find the difference e.g. counting back to subtract. Children may incorrectly identify the even/odd number 'before' or 'after' the one given.

Provide practice for children to identify numbers before/after or odd/even numbers before/after a given one. Initially, allow children to use a number line. Remove this scaffold once feeling more confident.

### Keywords
