Introduction

(5 minutes)
One More
  • Gather students together for a read aloud.
  • Display the cover of the text and say, "Today we are going to practice our counting. When we count, we are going to look for patterns of one more. A pattern is something that repeats more than once."
  • Ask students to think about patterns of one more that they might have seen in the world.

Beginning

  • Provide visual examples of patterns students might see in the world.
  • Review counting from 1–10 in both English and students' home language (L1).
  • Preview the read-aloud in order to frontload relevant information or background knowledge needed to access the text.

Intermediate

  • Show examples of patterns in the world, then have students turn and talk to share what they notice with a partner.
  • Practice counting in English from 1–10.
