• The concept of one-to-one correspondence
• The concept of cardinality

### Materials

To conduct this lesson, you will need:

• A device with internet access and speakers to play the video from mathskills4kids.com
• A whiteboard or chart paper and markers
• Number cards from 1 to 20 (you can print them or make your own)
• Objects for counting, such as blocks, buttons, or stickers (make sure you have enough for each student to have at least 20)
• Paper and pencils or crayons for each student

• ### Warm-up

To begin the lesson:

• Review the names of the numbers from 1 to 10 with the students. You can use the number cards or write them on the board.
• Ask the students to repeat after you as you say each number.
• Then, ask them to point to the number card or the board when you say a number. For example, you can say, "Where is six?" and have the students point to the card or the board with the number 6.

• Next, introduce the numbers from 11 to 20. You can use the same method as before, but this time, explain that these numbers are made of two parts: a ten and a one. For example, you can say, "This is eleven. It has one ten and one one."
• Show the students how to write each number with two digits.
• Have them repeat after you as you say and write each number.
• Then, have them point to the number card or the board when you say a number.
• ### Introducing number recognition up to 20

After reviewing the numbers from 1 to 20:

• Tell the students they will watch a video to help them learn more about recognizing numbers in different ways.
• Explain that they will see numbers written in words, in digits, and as objects. They will also hear questions that ask them to pick a specific number.
• Play the video from mathskills4kids.com (https://youtu.be/qPG6btgegHA).
• Pause the video at each question and give the students time to answer. You can have them raise their hand, shout out loud, or write their answer on paper.
• Provide feedback and reinforcement as needed.
• ### Practice recognizing numbers from 1 to 20

After watching the video, tell the students that they will practice Recognizing numbers up to 20 with some activities.

Divide the students into pairs or small groups and give each group some objects for counting and some number cards.

Have each group do the following activities:

• Count out certain objects and match them with the corresponding number card. For example, count seven blocks and place them next to the card with the number 7.
• Pick a number card and write it in words on paper. For example, pick the card with 12 and write "twelve."
• Pick a number card and draw that many objects on paper. For example, pick the card with the number 16 and draw 16 circles.
• Pick a number card and find another way to show it with objects. For example, pick the card with the number 14 and show it with seven pairs of buttons.
• Pick two number cards and compare them using words like "more than, ""less than," or "equal to." For example, pick the cards with 9 and 13 and say, "Nine is less than thirteen."
• ### Group Sharing

After completing the activities, have each group share their work with the rest of the class. Ask them to explain how they did each activity and what they learned. Encourage the students to ask questions and give feedback to each other.
