This new skill helps students visualize the concept of “one more” by reinforcing the idea that when you count, the next number you say is one more.
W.1 Objects on a coordinate plane (Grades 2–6)
This revamped skill uses shapes that students are already familiar with to introduce the more advanced concept of the coordinate plane. The redesigned answer explanation uses visuals to help students count in the x-direction and y-direction to find an object’s location.
