Activities

You may see this:

Other Examples:

  • A child explains "After 159 comes 160 because after 5 tens comes 6 tens." 
  • When asked whether they can count to 1000, starting at 995, a child says “995, 996, 997, 998, 999, 1000!” 

Help your student become a(n) Counter Beyond 100

These activities include verbal and object counting, but they are *not*  rote. For example, they emphasize that after 99 comes 100, which means 100 ones *and* 10 tens. What follows 129 is…one hundred thirty, where thirty *means* 3 tens!  So, they focus not just on saying the number words, but understanding the (sometimes opaque) decade number words and transitions between units.
