21) Starting at Ten: Using Words
Counting Forwards 10 to 20
Understanding Activity Instruction
This is an ‘understanding’ (proficiency strand) activity . It takes longer than usual ‘fluency’ lesson warmup activities. This activity is the main body of the lesson for each of the three sessions. Do a nonBond Block activity for the lesson warmup.

 Please allow 40 minutes for each session. These videos are long.
 Session 1: Watch “Starting at Ten: Using Words”. Students complete Activity Board 21 once.
 Session 2: Watch “Starting at Ten: Using Words ~ Saying teen and ty“. This is the expressive skill. Print and use one number Board per pair. After this the students complete Activity Board 21 once.
 Session 3: Watch “Starting at Ten: Using Words ~ Listening teen and ty“. This is the receptive skill. Use one Number Board per pair. After this the students complete Activity Board 21 once.
The the clocks on the Tier One Sample Planner need to be corrected to these times. I will have these ready for to download for the start of 2025. Sorry for the confusion! Kind regards, Narelle.

Mathematics
 Develop fluency counting forwards in the correct order from 10 to 20.
 Connect the length of the Bond Blocks and number name.
 Identify numbers from 11 to 19 as a twopart bond made of 10 plus a singledigit number.
Language
 One longer.
 One more than. Later introduce “one greater than”. For example, “17 is one greater than 16”.
 One number after.
 A number is made up of digits in the same way a word is made up of letters. The number 16 is made up of the digits one and six.
 Place value: The place of a digit in a number determines the digit’s value (worth).
 In the number 16 the digit one is in the tens place so is worth one ten, ten.
 The digit six is in the ones place so is worth six ones, six.
