- 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.|
