Lesson Guide (Coaching Guide)
  1. Work with your student to preview the definitions of the key words for this lesson using pages 329–333 of the Glossary. The key words for this lesson are hundred chart, row, and column. Show your student the words and discuss.

    Direct your student’s attention to the hundred chart on the workmat. Explain that a hundred chart shows numbers from 1 to 100 in order and is made up of rows and columns. Point out that a row goes across and a column goes up and down. Have your student use her fingers to show what a row is and what a column is by tracing along one row and one column.

  2. Guide your student in completing page 113 of the Counting to 100 workmat.

    Pose the Problem – Say: Busy Bumblebee is a very busy bee, but he wants to practice counting numbers to 100. What can Busy Bumblebee use to help him? Have your student share her ideas as to how to solve the problem.

    Model – Point to each number 1 to 20 on the hundred chart as you and your student count aloud. Ask: What number do you think comes after 20? After 21? Continue having your student point to and read numbers through 40. Model how to name the number by counting on from the first number in the row. Have your student continue counting aloud after 50. Point to and name each number with your student until you reach the dotted number 81.

    When your student comes to the dotted numbers, have her trace each number. Finish counting on. Then, call out a number and have your student find it on her chart. Ask: Why do you think the chart is called a hundred chart? It has 100 numbers on it.

  3. Your student will watch the Learn Counting to 100 animation from the enVisionMATH Interactive Digital Path website. As your student completes the activity, there will be questions to answer. Allow your student time to answer the questions before moving forward. When the activity is complete, review the key words row and column. This can be a challenging differentiation for your student. Continue to expose and revisit throughout the lesson as necessary.
  4. Guide your student in completing problem 1 on page 114 of the Counting to 100 workmat. Say: Let’s look at problem 1. Put your finger on the star. Read the directions for problem 1. Then read the directions for problem 2. Observe your student as she works through problem 2 on her own. Allow your student time to discover the answers independently.

    If your student does not understand why she is tracing dotted numbers, then remind her that the chart shows the numbers in order from 1 to 100. A dotted number is a number that comes just before or just after another number.
