Counting

When students practice counting, they are keeping track of items, holding amounts in their heads, and getting comfortable with the order of numbers. Soon, they will even be able to use your number sense to tell ‘one more’ and ‘one less’ than a number without recounting. Check out the video lessons and resources below to practice counting at home!
