In this musical lesson plan, students will learn how to use counting aides when extending the number sequence to 100! Can be used as a stand-alone or support lesson plan for the **Musical Numbers** lesson.
Students will be able to explain strategies for extending the number sequence using counting aides.
Gather students together and ask, "What is the biggest number that you know?"
Play the One to 100 Number Song from 1-20.
Pause the song and teach students accompanying movements (e.g., marching in place in time to song, clapping, moving arms around head, etc.) and mix up movements if you choose to differentiate between 10s, 20s, 30s, etc.
Play the rest of the song and encourage students to sing along while doing the movements.
Tell the class that today they will be counting to 100!
