Counting to 100!
When your child is counting do they get stuck on the teen numbers? Does this sound familiar, "...11, 12, 13, 15, 16, 18, 20..." This type of error is very typical and both of my own children did this for, what seemed like, a REALLY long time. We put up the teen numbers in the house, just write them on a piece of paper and put it on your refrigerator. Have them touch the numbers 11-20 as they say them. You will be surprised how much this helps them get past those "Tricky Teens," as I like to call them. Before you know it your child will be counting past the teens and to 100! If you need more tips and tricks message me on Facebook or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. Here is a video link we have been using in the classroom as we transition to math corner activities before lunch each day. The kids love singing along.
