Big Idea:
Skip counting is a basic skill used in many math areas, including time and money. Students are introduced to the concept of skip counting in this lesson through a visit to the Flower Shop.

Big Idea:
Tally marks are a great way for students to practice skip counting and counting on from a given number. They will have fun "picking up sticks" with this interactive lesson!

Big Idea:
The students have had the opportunity to work with numbers in many different ways. It is now time to assess the learning that has taken place!

Big Idea:
Numbers don't stop at 20! We spend the last week or so of school looking at the numbers beyond 20. Today we do it through exploring a 100 Chart.

Big Idea:
Kids love to count and build puzzles. This activity encourages them to do both! The kids count objects on puzzle pieces and match the groups of objects to the correct number.

Big Idea:
In order to pull small groups during math instruction, the rest of the students need engaging activities that they can complete independently. These centers allow students to practice identifying, writing, counting and ordering numbers to 10.

Big Idea:
Counting on from a given number is a foundational skill that will assist students in learning addition. This lesson gives them exposure to this concept without naming it "adding".

Big Idea:
Kindergarteners often struggle with keeping track of objects while they count. This lesson shows kids different strategies to keep track of objects while they count.

Big Idea:
Counting on from a number is an important concept for students. It is used in adding, time and money. Learning what number comes next is an important step in learning this concept.
