Other Examples:

  • When asked to start at 78 and keep counting, a child responds "...78, 79...80, 81..."

Help your student become a(n) Counter to 100

These activities include verbal and object counting, but they are *not* just rote. For example, they emphasize that after 49 comes…fifty, which *means* five tens!  So, they focus not just on saying the number words, but understanding the (sometimes opaque) decade number words and decade transitions.
