This Fluency Activity is a part of the Lesson 9, Unit 5, Grade 1. When choosing a counting sequence to practice between Sides A and B, consider having students whisper count by fives to 30 and back. Although counting by fives is not a Grade 1 standard, in Lesson 11 students will be adding 5 minutes until they reach 30 minutes to build an understanding of half past the hour. Choose an appropriate Sprint based on the needs of the class. If the majority of students completed the first three quadrants on the previous Sprint, move to the next Sprint listed in the sequence provided below (Core Fluency Sprint List). If many students are not making it to the third quadrant, consider repeating the same Sprint.
