Task# Number After Bingo 1-15

Illustrative MathematicsVaries

Student work with number after is important because it increases student flexibility with the number sequence and the ability to start counting sequences at various points. Initially students may need a number line to locate the number after; students may also do some 'sub-vocal' counting (sort of like counting under their breath) from another number to give them a 'running start' which helps them carry on the sequence. Sub-vocalization is a common student strategy that should be noted when assessing a student's facility with number after. The students should reach a point when they 'just know' the number after orally and do not need the number line support or the additional counting.
