Representemos nuestras colecciones
The purpose of this lesson is for students to count collections of objects. The focus is on students representing how they counted.
In the Questions About Us routine, students use 5-frames to determine how many students are at school today. Students then count objects in different collections in a way that makes sense to them and represent their collections. The second activity is an optional activity that provides support in keeping track of which objects have been counted.
