Counting of figures can both be fun and frustrating for the pupils because this is the first introduction of counting of Numbers to the pupils.
Teachers must be patient and calm with the pupils. The teacher must make learning fun by making available necessary songs or rhymes.
Counting on’ is a math skill that allows the children to continue counting objects added to a previously counted group without recounting the entire group.
For instance, give a child three blocks and him to count. Then give the child another two blocks to continue counting
What the child is expected to do is to count————— 1, 2, 3 (when you add the extra two blocks, the
child will continue counting) 4, 5.
‘Counting on’ means the child will apply ‘one-to-one correspondence skill to the additional two blocks by counting 4, 5 instead of restarting at one and recounting all the five blocks.
The topic is presented step by step
The class teacher revises the previous topics
He introduces the new topic
The class teacher allows the pupils to give their own examples and he corrects them when the needs arise
Draw the following pattern
2 9 2 9 2 9 2 9 2 9
The class teacher wraps up or conclude the lesson by giving out short note to summarize the topic that he or she has just taught.
The class teacher also goes round to make sure that the notes are well copied or well written by the pupils.
He or she does the necessary corrections when and where the needs arise.
