Framework Indicators
 Counts objects to 3.
 Counts objects to 5.
 Counts objects to 10.
 WM Give the teacher the requested number of items, ensuring there is more than necessary.
Teacher Language
Make a statement
‘We are going to count to …….’.
Give an instruction:
‘Give me X ……..’.
Correction/Prompt:
‘Try again’.
When carrying out any of the following teaching activities it will be necessary to use different levels of support as indicated in the guidelines table at the beginning of Number. Fade this support as the student works towards developing independence.
When this activity is implemented, objects such as counters, teddy bears must be identical to ensure that the student is counting rather than attributing characteristics to numbers e.g. red counters symbolise 1, yellow counters symbolise 2 etc.
Whatever number is being counted, place more objects than is required in front of the student. The student has achieved this goal when they are able to stop counting at the number indicated without continuing to count on. A visual representation of the number to be counted may be shown to the student.
Counts
objects to 3 and stops at the appropriate number
Teacher states ‘We are going to count to 1. Give me 1 ….’, (ensuring there is a minimum of two objects in front of the student). Once the student has independently counted one object and stopped at the appropriate number, move onto two objects and then three, always ensuring there are more objects than is required. Encouraged students to touch, move or pick up the objects as they count.
Counts objects to 5 and to 10, and stops at the appropriate number
Follow teaching procedures as stated above. Do not move onto the next number unless 100% accuracy has been achieved.
