1st Grade Numbers (Counting, Writing)
Reading and Writing Numbers
Students count objects and pictures, and count by rote up to 120. To support students in their development of counting skills, encourage students to count objects they see in their environment.
Students continue to learn counting sequences and will write numbers up to 120. Print out copies of the Number Charts to use with students every day. The first chart includes numbers up to 100. Students should master counting these numbers before using the second chart that includes numbers to 120. Reinforce counting skills by having students count everyday objects and write the number.

Students count using sections of a number chart. This helps students identify patterns that help them remember the counting order and is the precursor to place-value understanding. Students should begin to recognize that the ones increase by one with each number but the tens increase after every 10 numbers.

This sections of charts on these worksheets include any of the numbers from 1 to 120 but will focus more on the numbers greater than 100. Students can count on from any number and find missing numbers. Talk about how the tens continue after 100.
