Lesson Plan Description

Rote counting (memorizing facts) does not ultimately support a deep understanding of place value and number sense.  These lessons support students in the language of math and help them explain the reason why skip counting is valuable.  Your students will:

  • Segment 1: collaborate and count and order numbers to 100 by tens with partners, explain why counting by 10s is helpful and demonstrate their understanding by creating visual representations
  • Segment 2: order by counting by 10s in strategic partnerships and explain the “why” by creating their own “ice cream cone”

These lessons can be taught over the span of a half day or you can use the lessons independently, broken up over several days.
