# Belinda Blackburn▸ U4: Math Connections

Students have used Scratch Jr for a Term and are familiar with how to program simple events.
Collect, explore and sort data, and use digital systems to present the data creatively (ACTDIP003)
Lesson 1 – Exploring numbers 1 to 10
Children will draw a sprite relating to the number on different pages in ScratchJr. e.g 1 cat, 2 dogs
Lesson 2 – Programming objects
Children will now use the programming blocks to move their sprite according to their corresponding number. They will have a flag and an end block connector on each page
e.g move forward 1 for 1 cat
Lesson 3 – Using sound
Children will add a front page and record themselves counting to 10. They will then add sound to each page which says the number on it.
