Number sequences. Counting from any number. More and less. Need: tactile (here, I used small rocks); Deck of number cards; 1 more, 1 less cards, whiteboard. Set up the shown. Review "more" and "less" using the tactiles. Review "1 more" and "1 less". Then segue into the activity: Deal a card. Have your tutee copy the number in the middle and think through one more and one less than that number. Your tutee may use the tactiles if necessary.
