TERM 1
We will be working with numbers to 10
We will be working with numbers to 10
 Numbers to 10 can be recognized and sequenced
 decomposing 10 into parts
 counting on and counting back
 skip counting by 2's and 5's
 subitizing (recognizing a small group without counting)
 base ten
 addition and subtraction to 10 (friends of 10)
 identifying sorting rules
 repeating patterns with multiple attributes
 translating patterns (an orangeblue pattern could be translated into a circlesquare pattern)
 patterns using visuals (ten frames, skip counting on a hundreds chart)
 concrete graphs help us to compare and interpret data and show oneto one correspondence
 likelihood of familiar life events  using the language of probability (never, sometimes, always, more likely, less likely)
We have been having fun patterning and sorting with loose parts and with leaves that we found on our nature walk! We have also been talking about increasing and decreasing patterns :)
Numbers to 20
Things to practice:
counting on, counting back
sequencing numbers to 20
skip counting by 2's and 5's to 20 (and beyond)
finding patterns in skip counting
greater than/less than
representing numbers in different ways (tallies, pictures, ten frames etc.)

THE BIG MATH IDEAS ARE: *A ten frame helps us to organize numbers in 5 and some more. A full ten frame holds 10. When we see a ten frame, we can see how many more we need to get to 10. Mathematicians use ten frames to build and represent 2digit numbers. *When we count a set, we can count in many ways by 1's, 2's, 5's or 10's and some more. The answer is always the same! *Mathematicians make sense of bigger numbers through place value. There are patterns in place value based on 10ness. the teen numbers all have ten and some more. After that, we can count in 10's and some more. *We can compare and order big numbers like we do small ones. *We can add or subtract bigger numbers like we do smaller ones. *It's a good idea to estimate the sum and difference before we add or subtract. *When we add bigger numbers, we use the idea of partitioning. We add tens, then ones. Same for subtraction. *Using ten frames can help us make sense of addition and subtraction of bigger numbers. Measurement Big Ideas:
