## Worksheet Description

This worksheet displays a series of boxes, each containing a central number with three numbers surrounding it. The students’ task is to identify and circle the number that is one more than the central number in each box. The surrounding numbers are arranged in no particular order, so the students must discern the correct number among them. This activity requires a student to focus on each central number and understand the sequence of numbers in order to accurately find the number that is one more.

The worksheet is crafted to enhance students’ ability to identify numbers in a sequence and understand the concept of ‘one more’ in a numerical context. It encourages the development of number recognition skills and the concept of ordinality in numbers. By completing this exercise, students practice basic addition and improve their number sense. This activity also serves as a stepping stone to more complex arithmetic operations, as it solidifies the foundational concept of incrementing numbers.
