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

Students engage in Mathematical Practice 6 (Attend to precision) as they organize and count collections of objects and label them with written numerals.

Key vocabulary: 

  • numeral
  • organize

Special materials needed:
