TLF ID M021818
This lesson focuses on building students' counting skills, particularly their ability to subitise a collection (recognise the number of items in a group without the need to count them) . Students consider ways of structuring a collection so that the total can be quickly identified. They explore different arrangements for numbers and are given opportunities to explore skip counting, addition and partitioning. The lesson is outlined in detail including curriculum links, vocabulary, materials needed, discussion points and student resources. This sequence is part of the reSolve: Maths by Inquiry program.
