10. Rote counting to 20 (FP)

Lesson objective: Count numbers in sequence up to 20, starting at 1.

This lesson helps to build a procedural skill with counting numbers in order up to 20. Ten frames are used here because they support the development of a visual image to support the numbers students are rote counting. This work develops students' understanding that numbers exist in a sequence that does not change, and they can be counted.

Students engage in Mathematical Practice 6 (Attend to precision) as they work on counting precisely and in order.
