Today we will be adding by counting on.
Draw a number line to help you with this
Children explore addition by counting on from a given number. They begin to understand that addition is commutative and that it is more efficient to start from the largest number. It is important that children see that they are not just adding two separate numbers or items, they are adding to what they already have.
Ensure children do not include the number they are starting with when counting on. For example: What is 4 more than 6? Your start counting on from 7 and say 7,8,9,10 - 4 more than 6 is 10.
What number did you start with? Then what happened? Now what do I have?
