Other Examples:

  • A child has a group of objects and says, "One [points to first], two [points to second], three [starts to point], four [finishes pointing, but now is still pointing to the third object], five...nine, ten, eleven, twelve, 'firteen', fifteen..."
  • Asked for 5, counts out 3, saying, "one, two, five."

Help your student become a(n) Reciter (10)

These activities provide experience with verbal counting past the intuitive numbers of 1-10, helping children learn the extended sequence and distinguish each counting word.
