Once again The Curriculum Corner is happy to share this series of short videos to help you with your math instruction. We are thrilled to have partnered with ORIGO Education and be able to show you some of the wonderful resources they provide.
We have already shared four different ORIGO One videos, and we hope they have helped you in your thinking as you begin to teach new math concepts to your students. If you haven’t seen these, be sure to check at the bottom for links to all four.
This is the fifth in our series of videos by ORIGO Education. Each one minute video is designed to help teachers discover or even explain a new strategy for teaching a math concept. These videos have been created for teachers, not students. The hope is that each one will give you some kind of new knowledge or different thinking that will help with your instruction in the classroom.
The ORIGO One series of videos is meant to show you how to create light bulb moments for your students and therefore increase their understanding.
These videos take a mathematics concept, break it into small pieces that are easy to understand and perhaps introduce you to something you haven’t already thought of with regards to teaching a new skill.
We hope that you will find the videos we share to be useful in your classroom instruction! And the best part is…they only take a minute of your time!
This fifth video will be helpful for teachers of early math learners. It focuses on sharing the difference between rote and rational counting and explains the five counting principles that early math learners need to know in order to create a solid foundation for understanding numbers. The information presented is based off of research from Gelman and Gallistel, 1978.
The five counting principles explained are:
- One-to-One Principle
- Stable-Order Principle
- Cardinal Principle
- Order-Irrelevance Principle
- Abstraction Principle
The video helps teachers to understand how rational counting involves a much deeper understanding of quantities. We believe teachers could use these principles as the basis of an assessment to gain insight into each students’ level of understanding.
