Lesson objective: Identify written numerals to match sets of objects.

This lesson helps to build fluency with using the numerals 0 - 10 to represent sets of objects. Ten frames are used here because they support students in using strategies for identifying quantities to 10. This work develops students' understanding that a written numeral can be used to represent any number of objects.

Students engage in Mathematical Practice 2 (Reason abstractlly and quantitatively) as they count sets of objects and match them with written numerals.

Key vocabulary:

  • bingo
  • numeral
  • row
