Help your student become a(n) Counter from N (N + 1, N - 1)
These activities help children learn the counting skill of starting to count backwards and forwards from any number (which seems "easy" to adults, although many of us cannot do that with our ABC's!). Most provide scaffolding, as in Counting Wand, where children hear someone else count but then have to "pick it up where they left off."
