For example, they are asked to calculate the total number of people at a bus stop after more join the initial group. A number line from 0 to 10 is provided to visually support the counting on process. Students fill in the blanks to complete the addition sentence and write the total number of people.

Further exercises involve a variety of objects such as beads and cherries to maintain interest and apply addition to different situations. Students are encouraged to count on from the bigger number, which is an efficient strategy for quick mental addition.

These activities are designed to reinforce the concept of addition by counting on, with the aim of building a strong foundation for future mathematical learning.
