In this paper I introduce and categorise the concept of foundational number sense (FONS). Broadly described as the number related competences expected of grade one children, which research has shown to be necessary for the later study of mathematics, FONS is operationalised as an eight dimensional framework for analysing the number-related opportunities teachers present to their students. Drawing on data from a case study of exemplary teaching in grade one classrooms, I analyse one teacher’s, Klara’s, practice against the framework to show not only that she provides some profound opportunities for her students to learn but does so in ways that reflect the long-standing Hungarian tradition of mathematics as a problem solving discipline taught in collaborative and socially dynamic ways.
