A 60 minute lesson in which students will sequence the numbers from 1 to 10.
As a class, ask the students to share some of the numbers they recorded in their I Can See Numbers Everywhere! Booklet, then randomly record some of these numbers on the board. Referring to the numbers on the board, ask the students:
Are these numbers in order? How do you know?
Can we count to ten with these numbers? Why or why not?
Is there a way we could arrange these numbers so that they are in a particular order?
Display and discuss slide 5 of the Sequencing Numbers PowerPoint. Encourage the students to count forwards by ones from 1 to 10, then backwards by ones from 10 to 1 to identify the sequence.
As a class, complete the activities on slides 6 and 8. Discuss the answers on slides 7 and 9.
Monitor and support the students as they complete the task. Once the students have created their number sequencing sausage dogs, invite the class to sit together with their dogs and count forwards from 1 to 9, then backwards from 9 to 1. As the students count, check that their sausage dogs have been numbered correctly.
Invite ten students to stand out the front of the class and randomly provide them with a 1 to 10 number card from the Zero to Twenty Posters. As a class, sequence the students with the cards from 1 to 10.
Provide more capable students with the written numbers for the independent task. Alternatively, provide them with larger numbers to sequence from smallest to largest.
Invite less confident students to work in small groups with the teacher or teacher aide.
