In first grade, students typically learn about the numbers that come between other numbers, also known as “counting numbers” or “natural numbers.” These are the numbers 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, and so on. They are called “counting numbers” because they are used to count the number of objects in a group. For example, if you have 3 pencils, you can count them by saying “1, 2, 3” and you will know that there are 3 pencils in total. In first grade, students usually learn to count to 100 and may also learn about the order of numbers and how to compare numbers using the terms “greater than” and “less than.”

The numbers that come between two other numbers are also referred to as “integers.” For example, the integers between 3 and 7 are 4, 5, and 6.
