Year 1 Arrangement Styles: How Many Counters Are There?

WOW Lesson

This lesson equips children to find out how many objects are in a set without the need to count one-to-one correspondence. Children learn a simple set of arrangements they can recognise and utilise. Many children, even in Key Stage 2, rely on one-to-one correspondence to work out how many objects there are in a set. We encourage the children to subitise (see how many there are in a random arrangement) and to recognise (see how many there are in a formal arrangement). This lesson focuses on learning a set of simple arrangements children can use to work out how many objects they have in a set.
