Math - Counting
Students already skilled at counting may try more complex strategies - grouping the objects and adding (the foundation for multiplication), or skip-counting by 2s, 5s or 10s.
Most students in our class count up to 100 and beyond with no difficulty. However, if given a random number and asked to count backwards - the task becomes much more challenging. Try asking your first grader to start on a number (like 53), and count backwards. Once your child can do this easily, transition to skip-counting, especially taking groups of small objects (greater than 30), and organizing them in different ways for quick counting.
