# Lesson Plan Template

• #### Vocabulary

Count: To determine the total number of objects in a sequence by incrementing by one.

Sequence: An ordered set of numbers.

### Materials and Preparation

• Whiteboard and markers
• TeachTastic Worksheet Pack for Counting Forward
• Number line (0-120)
• Student notebooks and pencils

### Learning Objectives

• Students will understand how to count forward from any given number up to 120.
• Students will be able to identify the next number in a counting sequence.
• Students will demonstrate their understanding through counting exercises and identifying correct sequences.

### Introduction

Begin by discussing the importance of counting forward and recognizing number patterns. Explain that counting helps us understand the order of numbers and their relationships.

### Explicit Instruction/Teacher modeling

Display a number line from 0 to 120 on the board. Provide an example by starting at the number 66. Ask students, "Counting up from 66, what number comes next?" Guide them to count forward in sequence:

1. Show the number line starting from 66: "66, 67, 68, 69, 70..."
2. Explain that the next number after 66 is 67.

### Guided Practice

Hand out the Guided Practice worksheet from the TeachTastic Worksheet Pack. Work through the first few sequences together, identifying the next number in each sequence. Use the number line to help students visualize the counting process.

### Independent Practice

Students will complete the Practice worksheet independently, where they identify the next number in various counting sequences. Encourage students to use the number line to check their answers.

## Support

• Visual Aids: Use posters or charts with number lines and sequences to reinforce counting.
• Peer Assistance: Pair students who understand the concept with those needing extra help.

## Extension

• Real-Life Application: Ask students to count objects in their environment, such as steps or items, and share their findings with the class.
• Creative Counting: Have students create their own number sequences and exchange with a partner to identify the next number.

### Assessment

Use the Assessment worksheet from the TeachTastic Worksheet Pack to evaluate students' understanding. Ensure they can accurately identify the next number in a counting sequence up to 120.

### Review and closing

Review the importance of counting forward and recognizing number patterns. Address common misconceptions, such as skipping numbers or miscounting. Allow students to ask any final questions or share their observations about the lesson.

### Misconceptions

1. Skipping numbers while counting: Clarify the importance of counting each number once.
2. Misidentifying sequences: Ensure students understand the correct order of numbers.
