### TEACHING TIPS

Use the "Count and Match" game as an extension activity for students who have demonstrated mastery of the counting and writing numbers lesson. This game is a fun way to reinforce counting skills and matching numbers with the correct amount of objects, while providing an additional challenge for more advanced learners. Additionally, the game can be adapted to include larger numbers or more complex picture cards to further challenge students who are ready for a greater level of difficulty. Encourage students to play the game in small groups or pairs to promote teamwork and collaboration.

• Use visual aids and manipulatives to help students understand the concept of counting and writing numbers. For example, use picture cards and objects to count, and demonstrate how to write numbers correctly.
• Provide opportunities for students to practice counting and writing numbers in small groups and independently. Monitor their progress and provide support as needed.
• Use positive reinforcement to encourage and motivate students. Praise them for their efforts and progress, and provide constructive feedback to help them improve.

### STUDENT MISCONCEPTIONS

• Students may struggle with counting accurately, especially when there are multiple objects on the picture card. It is important to emphasize the importance of counting each object only once.
• Students may confuse numbers with letters or symbols. It is important to emphasize the difference between numbers and other symbols, and demonstrate how to write numbers correctly.
• Students may struggle with writing numbers in the correct formation. It is important to demonstrate how to write each number and provide opportunities for students to practice writing them correctly.
