- When given sticks with bundles of 10 and some singles, a child counts by tens and then ones to determine the total number of sticks.
- When shown 3 whole plastic eggs and 4 halves, a child counts and says there are 5 whole eggs.
Help your student become a(n) Counter of Quantitative Units/Place Value
These activities help children learn to count in different units, switching during the same count. The scaffolding includes using bundled manipulatives or dollar bills in different denominations as well as math talk. Another way of counting different units is counting fractional units (e.g., two halves of an egg) as one whole.
