Lesson 1
Contemos colecciones grandes de objetos
Warm-up: Conteo grupal: Contemos hasta 80 y contemos empezando desde un número (10 minutes)

The purpose of this warm-up is for students to extend the verbal count sequence to 80 and to count on from a given number. As students count, point to the numbers posted so that students can follow along.
Launch
- “Contemos hasta 80” // “Let’s count to 80.”
- Count to 80 1–2 times as a class.
Activity
- “Ahora, empiecen en el número 10 y cuenten hasta 20” // “Now, start at the number 10 and count to 20.”

- Repeat 2–3 times with other numbers 11–20.
Activity 1: Contemos colecciones (10 minutes)
Narrative
The purpose of this activity is for students to count their collection in a way that makes sense to them. Students may use the counting mat or 10-frame to organize objects as they count. Students use appropriate tools strategically as they choose which tools help them count their collections (MP5). As students share how many objects are in their collection, write or display the number to record their count.
If there is additional time, invite students to count more than 1 collection of objects.
Required Materials

Advancing Student Thinking
If students recount the group of objects when asked “¿cuántos hay?” // “how many?”, consider asking:
- “¿Puedes decirme cuántos objetos hay sin contarlos otra vez?” // “Can you tell me how many objects there are without counting them again?”
- If needed, demonstrate counting the group of objects and after saying the last number, ask “¿Qué nos dice el número_____?” // “What does the number ___ tell us?”
Activity Synthesis
- “Cuéntenle a su pareja cómo descifraron cuántos objetos hay en su colección” // “Tell your partner how you figured out how many objects are in your collection.”
- Invite 2–3 students to share how they counted their collection.
- After each student shares, display the number and say, “Hay _____ objetos en su colección” // “There are _____ objects in their collection.”
- “En la próxima actividad, vamos a compartir diferentes formas en las que contamos nuestras colecciones” // “In the next activity we will share different ways that we counted our collections.”
Activity 2: Cómo contamos (10 minutes)
Narrative
The purpose of this activity is for students to describe different methods that help them count collections of objects. Consider adding visual cues to the chart created in this activity and leaving it displayed for students to refer to throughout the unit. When students explain how they could count the disorganized cubes, they attend to precision in counting accurately (MP6).

Activity 3: Conozcamos “Carrera con números: Números del 11 al 20” (25 minutes)
Narrative
The purpose of this activity is for students to learn stage 2 of the Number Race center. Students practice recognizing and writing numbers 11–20 as they roll a connecting cube onto the mat and trace the number that it lands on. To support their developing number recognition, students can match the symbol on the number mat to the symbol on the recording sheet. Students continue rolling and tracing until one number “wins” (all of the numbers in the column are traced). After students have traced all of one number, they can finish tracing the rest of the numbers. Students can use different colors or writing utensils during this center. In a future variation of this center, students will write the numbers instead of tracing them.
After they participate in the center, students choose from any stage of previously introduced centers.
- Subtraction Towers
- 5-frames
Students will choose from these centers throughout the section. Keep materials from these centers organized to use each day.

Ese número es el ganador” // “Take turns with your partner. During each turn, roll the cube and trace the number on the recording sheet. Play until you’ve traced all of one number. That number is the winner.”
