# Lesson Plan Template

• #### Vocabulary

Number Chart: A grid with numbers placed in sequential order.

Count Forward: Moving to the next number in sequence.

Sequence: An ordered set of numbers.

### Materials and Preparation

• TeachTastic Worksheet Pack for Counting on a Number Chart
• Whiteboard and markers
• Number charts printed on paper
• Student notebooks and pencils

### Learning Objectives

• Students will identify numbers on a number chart up to 120.
• Students will count forward by ones to find missing numbers.
• Students will fill in missing numbers on a number chart accurately.

### Introduction

Introduce the concept of a number chart by showing a 1-20 chart on the whiteboard. Explain how the chart is organized with numbers in sequence. Present the example problem: "Find the missing number after 12." Show how to start with 12 and count forward by 1 to find the missing number (13).

### Explicit Instruction/Teacher modeling

Expand the number chart to 1-30 on the whiteboard. Demonstrate how to identify and fill in missing numbers by counting forward by ones. Emphasize looking at the number before the empty square and counting forward. Use the TeachTastic Worksheet Pack for Counting on a Number Chart to provide additional examples and guided practice.

### Guided Practice

Distribute the first worksheet from the TeachTastic Worksheet Pack for Counting on a Number Chart. Work through the first few problems as a class. For example, if the number before the empty square is 22, start with 22 and count forward by one to find the missing number (23). Encourage students to follow along and use their printed number charts.

### Independent Practice

Students will complete additional problems from the TeachTastic Worksheet Pack independently. Tasks will include identifying and filling in missing numbers on a number chart up to 120 by counting forward by ones.

## Support

• Use Visual Aids: Display large number charts in the classroom for easy reference.
• Use Manipulatives: Provide students with physical number charts and counters to manipulate and visualize counting steps.

## Extension

• Number Puzzles: Provide challenging number chart puzzles where students fill in multiple missing numbers in a sequence.
• Real-Life Application: Ask students to use a number chart to solve real-world problems, such as organizing items by numbers or creating a numbered list.

### Assessment

Evaluate students' understanding through the exit ticket and the completed independent practice worksheets. Check for accuracy in identifying and filling in missing numbers on a number chart up to 120.

### Review and closing

Summarize the key points of the lesson, including how to use a number chart and count forward by ones. Address common misconceptions, such as skipping numbers or counting backward. Allow students to ask questions and share their observations about using number charts.

### Misconceptions

1. Counting skips numbers: Reinforce the importance of sequential counting without skipping numbers.
2. Confusing the direction of counting: Ensure students understand the concept of counting forward by ones.
