# Lesson Plan Template

• #### Vocabulary

Number Line: A line with numbers placed in their correct position in sequence.

Sequence: A particular order in which related events or things follow each other.

### Materials and Preparation

• Number line chart
• Whiteboard and markers
• TeachTastic Worksheet Pack for Number Sequences
• Projector or smartboard (if available)
• Printed number lines for individual practice

### Learning Objectives

• Students will be able to identify the number that comes immediately after a given number using a number line.
• Students will understand the concept of sequential order in a series of numbers.
• Students will use a number line as a tool to find the next number in a sequence.

### Introduction

Begin the lesson by displaying a large number line on the board. Ask students to count along with you from 1 to 30. Then, pose the question, "Which number comes just after 20?" Engage students by inviting them to find 20 on the number line and think about which number comes next.

### Explicit Instruction/Teacher modeling

Explain that a number line is a tool that helps us see the order of numbers. Show students how to locate a number on the number line and identify the number that comes immediately after it. For example, if we find 20 on the number line, the next number to the right is 21. Demonstrate this step-by-step on the board.

### Guided Practice

Hand out printed number lines and worksheets from the TeachTastic Worksheet Pack for Number Sequences. Guide students through several examples, starting with finding the number that comes after 20, then moving on to other numbers like 15, 7, and 29. Walk around the room to provide support and ensure students are following along.

### Independent Practice

Have students complete additional exercises from the TeachTastic Worksheet Pack for Number Sequences independently. These exercises should include a variety of numbers for students to practice finding the next number in the sequence using their number lines.

## Support

• Provide additional number line charts for students who need extra practice.
• Offer one-on-one or small group sessions for students who struggle with the concept.

## Extension

• Challenge advanced students with higher numbers beyond 30.
• Introduce exercises that involve finding the number that comes before a given number as an additional practice.

### Assessment

Evaluate students' understanding through their performance on the independent practice worksheets and the exit tickets. Review their ability to correctly identify the next number in a sequence using the number line.

### Review and closing

Summarize the key points of the lesson, emphasizing the importance of understanding number sequences and how to use a number line. Address any common misconceptions and invite students to ask questions or share their observations. Reinforce the day's learning by having a few students demonstrate finding the next number on the number line in front of the class.

### Misconceptions

1. Skipping Numbers: Some students might skip numbers when identifying the next number. Ensure they understand to look immediately to the right of the given number.
2. Starting from 1: Students might start counting from 1 each time. Emphasize starting from the given number.
