CountingWHOLE NUMBERS

Now and Next

Where are they now?

As for previous level but in range to 100.

Can count by 2s, 5s, or 10s (from 0)

Where to next?

Counts forwards in place-value parts (tens and ones), starting from any number, in range to 99

Purpose

Purpose: Counting is a complex activity which involves three main understandings; that numbers are named in a fixed sequence, that one number is counted per object and that the last number counted names the count. This sequence moves students from simply memorising a sequence of numbers, through understanding that counting is about 'how many', visualising and using numbers mentally and building place value understanding to count more efficiently as well as understand the composition of very large numbers.

Resources

Activities where students are encouraged to match and compare written numerals with physical models of numbers, helps students to develop a strong conception of number as a quantity, and helps them learn to 'trust the count'.

Hundred Chart - Count and Circle Off the Decade

Focus: When counting by numbers other than one, it helps for students to be able to see the spatial and number patterns the count makes on a one hundred chart to help them to memorise the count itself as well as to recall the meaning of the count. Seeing the patterns in counting by tens is particularly important. As well as being an efficient method of counting large collections, counting by ten 'off the decade' helps students to start further refining place value ideas and provides the basis for some important addition strategies.

Seeing the patterns in counting by tens is particularly important. As well as being an efficient method of counting large collections, counting forwards and backwards by ten 'off the decade' helps students to start further refining place value ideas and provides the basis for some important addition strategies.
