StarrMatica’s K-2 Lesson on Counting has launched!

Students join Madeline as she helps in her aunt and uncle’s candy shop.

Throughout the lesson students learn:

  • the count sequence to 10
  • the last number in the count is the total
  • how to count starting at a number other than one
  • how to count up to 20 items
  • to count backward
  • to skip count
  • to identify if objects in one group are greater than, less than, or equal to the number of objects in another group
  • to count on a hundreds chart
  • to use tally marks to identify a number of objects
  • to identify a missing number in a sequence

A few highlights of the lesson include:

Teacher Tool:  Counting Toolbox – This virtual manipulative includes a customizable game board, counters, dice, and cards that will make creating your own counting game a snap.
