Lesson objective: Apply the understanding that any number of objects can be represented with a written numeral.

This lesson provides an opportunity for students to apply their knowledge and understanding of written numerals to a real-life situation. Students are asked to use counters to represent a scenario, count accurately, and write a numeral to represent each count. Students justify why their numeral represents a quantity by demonstrating a one-to-one correspondence or another representation (concretely or pictorially) that makes sense.

Key Concept students will use:

• The number sequence remains the same regardless of the starting number.

Skills students will use:

• Rote counting to 20 and understanding amount counted; (Grade K, Unit 1)
• Counting objects arranged in different ways
• Writing Numerals

Key vocabulary:

• numeral
