Identifies collections of tens and ones to 50 without counting


When students associate mental images of dot patterns or collections of objects with numbers (either stated orally or written), they are more likely to understand that maths is about quantities and not just memorising word patterns.


Activities where students are encouraged to quickly identify collections up to fifty, where groups of ten are clearly indicated, help to develop this idea.
