# Walk the Bridge

Keywords:
Achievement Objectives:

Achievement Objective: NA1-1: Use a range of counting, grouping, and equal-sharing strategies with whole numbers and fractions.
AO elaboration and other teaching resources
Achievement Objective: NA1-2: Know the forward and backward counting sequences of whole numbers to 100.
AO elaboration and other teaching resources
Achievement Objective: NA1-3: Know groupings with five, within ten, and with ten.
AO elaboration and other teaching resources

Specific Learning Outcomes:

Count a set of objects in the range 1–10.

Say the forwards and backwards number word sequences in the range 0–10.

Say the forwards and backwards number word sequences in the range 0–20.

Say the forwards and backwards number word sequences in the range 0–20, at least.

Recall the facts up to 10, and the teen facts.

Description of mathematics:

Number Framework Stage 1 to 4.

Required Resource Materials:
Large Numerals (Material Master 4-3)
Activity:

Place large numeral cards on the ground in order from 1 to 9 to form a bridge. The students count as one student steps on the number. The student who is “walking the bridge” may decide to walk forwards or backwards. The other students follow closely to produce the forward or backward counting sequence. Have the student stand on a number and discuss what is before and after this number.
