# Lesson 1

Count Large Collections

## Warm-up: Choral Count: Count by 10 (10 minutes)

### Narrative

The purpose of this Choral Count is to invite students to practice counting by 10 and notice patterns in the count. These understandings help students develop fluency and will be helpful later in this lesson when students count collections with a number of objects that is a multiple of 10.

In this warm-up, students begin to look for and make use of structure (MP7) when they connect counting by 10 to the patterns they see in the digits of the two-digit numbers.

### Launch

- “Count by 10, starting at 30.”
- Record as students count.
- Stop counting and recording at 100, then count back down to 30.

### Activity

- “What patterns do you see?”
- 1–2 minutes: quiet think time
- Record responses.

### Activity Synthesis

- “Who can restate the pattern in different words?”
- “What do you notice about how the numbers change or stay the same as we look down the column?”

## Activity 1: Count a Collection (10 minutes)

### Narrative

The purpose of this activity is for students to organize and count a collection of 40 objects. Students should have access to double 10-frames, cups, paper plates, or other tools that may help them organize as they count. Students choose how to count their collection and determine how to represent their count. They may:

- count by one.
- count by one, using double 10-frames or other tools to keep track of tens (MP5).
- organize objects into groups of ten and count by ten.
- count by ten and then by one, depending on their comfort with larger numbers.

During the synthesis, students discuss different ways they counted and organized their collections.

*MLR2 Collect and Display.*Circulate, listen for, and collect the language students use as they work with their partners. On a visible display, record words and phrases such as: count, represent, representation, my representation shows . . . . Invite students to borrow language from the display as needed, and update it throughout the lesson.

*Advances: Conversing, Reading*

### Required Materials

Materials to Gather

Materials to Copy

- Counting Collections Stages 1 and 2 Recording Sheet

### Required Preparation

- Each group of 2 students needs one bag of 40 objects.

### Launch

- Groups of 2
- Give each group a bag of objects and access to double 10-frames, cups, paper plates, or other tools to help organize a count.
- “You and your partner will get a bag of objects. Your job is to figure out how many are in the bag.”
- Consider asking:
- “How can we make sure both partners are counting?”
- “What might it look like to count together? What might it sound like?”
- “How can we make decisions together about how we count?”
- “How can you be a good math partner?”

- “Work with your partner to count the collection. Each partner will show on paper how many there are and how you counted them.”

### Activity

- 5 minutes: partner work time
- As students work, consider asking:
- “How did you count? How many are there?”
- “How can you represent this so someone can see exactly how you counted?”
- “Tell me about what you have written here. How many does it show?”
- “Does your representation match how you counted?”

- Monitor for students who:
- count all, one object at a time.
- group into tens using an organizational tool, then count.

### Activity Synthesis

- Invite previously identified students to share.
- “How are the ways they organized the same and different?” (One student moved the ones they had counted to one side of the space. The other student put groups of ten on each plate to help them count.)

## Activity 2: Count More Than One Collection (15 minutes)

### Narrative

The purpose of this activity is for students to practice counting and representing collections with multiples of 10 objects. Students count one bag with their partner. When students have finished counting and recording, they trade bags with a different group and count a new collection. During the launch, teachers may choose to provide time for students to reflect on how they worked together in the previous activity. During the synthesis, students discuss using a tool that organizes the objects in groups of ten, and how that is helpful when counting a collection.

Bags B–D will be used again in a future lesson in this unit.

*Action and Expression: Internalize Executive Functions.*Invite students to plan a method with their partners, including the tools they will use, for counting the collection of objects.

*Supports accessibility for: Organization, Attention*

### Required Materials

Materials to Gather

### Required Preparation

- Each student will need the blackline master from the previous activity.
- Create 1 set of the following 6 bags of objects for each group of 12 students:
- Bag A: 20 objects
- Bag B: 40 objects
- Bag C: 50 objects
- Bag D: 60 objects
- Bag E: 30 objects
- Bag F: 10 objects

### Launch

- Groups of 2
- Give each group a bag of objects. Give students access to double 10-frames, cups, paper plates, or other tools to help organize a count.
- “Now you will work with your partner to count more collections. Each partner will show on paper how many there are and show how you counted.”

### Activity

- 5 minutes: partner work time
- “Switch bags with another group. Work with your partner to count the collection. Each partner will show on paper how many there are and show how you counted them.”
- 5 minutes: partner work time
- As students work, consider asking:
- “How can you use what we learned in the last activity to help you organize your count?”
- “Tell me about what you have written here. How many does it show?”
- “Does your representation match how you counted?”

- Monitor for students who:
- organize objects into groups of ten using cups, paper plates, or other tools.
- group using double 10-frames.

### Advancing Student Thinking

If students count each collection by one, consider asking:

- “Can you explain how you counted your collection?”
- “How can the double 10-frame help you count the collection?”

### Activity Synthesis

- Invite previously identified students to share.
- “How did they use tools to help them count?” (With tools you don’t need to count every object, you can just use the 10-frame to organize 10 and then count how many tens there are.)

## Activity 3: Centers: Choice Time (15 minutes)

### Narrative

The purpose of this activity is for students to choose from activities that offer practice adding and subtracting within 20. Students choose from any stage of previously introduced centers.

- How Close?
- Five in a Row
- Number Puzzles

### Required Materials

Materials to Gather

### Required Preparation

- Gather materials from previous centers:
- How Close, Stages 1 and 2
- Five in a Row, Stages 1-3
- Number Puzzles, Stages 1 and 2

### Launch

- Groups of 2
- “Now you are going to choose from centers we have already learned.”
- Display the center choices in the student book.
- “Think about what you would like to do.”
- 30 seconds: quiet think time

### Activity

- Invite students to work at the center of their choice.
- 10 minutes: center work time

### Student Facing

Five in a Row

Number Puzzles

### Activity Synthesis

- Display 4, 8, 5, 9.
- “Diego is playing How Close, Subtract from 20. Should he choose two or three of these numbers to subtract? Which numbers should he choose?”

## Lesson Synthesis

### Lesson Synthesis

“Today we counted different collections of objects. Each collection had a lot of objects. What are some different ways we organized the objects to help us count?”
