Arrange train carriages according to numbers on their sides. The numbers are represented in a range of formats such as words, numerals, base-10 blocks or counting frames. Identify the numbers that come before and after starting numbers. Work with whole numbers up to 20. For example, arrange four carriages into the order 8, 9, 10, 11. This learning object is the second in a series of five objects that progressively increase in difficulty. The series is also packaged as a combined learning object.

Establish understanding of the language and processes of counting by naming numbers in sequences, initially to and from 20, moving from any starting point
Connect number names, numerals and quantities, including zero, initially up to 10 and then beyond
Compare, order and make correspondences between collections, initially to 20, and explain reasoning
Positive integers, Whole numbers, Counting, Number recognition
Key Learning Objectives
Students sequence whole numbers up to 20.
Students connect number words and numerals to the quantities they represent (ten-frames, base-10 blocks).
Students recognise place value in two-digit numbers.
Students recognise two-digit number ‘names’ and values in a variety of representations.
Students develop and consolidate counting forwards and backwards skills that are fundamental to addition and subtraction skills.
Challenges students to develop strategies as they predict, test and confirm, or change the sequencing of numbers.
Randomised number generation encourages repeated use.
