The first thing we did was Mr. Greg modeled how to count on.
Then we practiced counting on together.
And finally, we used our number line and practiced counting on.
I called each ‘stache to the number line. I asked them to count on from a number to a number. So, I might say, Count on from 5 to 9. They found the number 5 on the number line and counted on. (Notice we’re up and moving and learning letter recognition!) Then we all practiced counting on out loud!
Super simple lesson. Super effective and engaging!
Here’s a short video of our counting on lesson!
