Counting collections helps our students use CONCRETE objects to count, create REPRESENTATIONAL drawings of what they did, and add ABSTRACT details like numerals.
This process is KEY for true mathematical learning to occur. Don't just skip to the abstract: help students understand what numbers MEAN!
Upper Grade Ideas
Count by fractions, decimals, groups (2s, 3s, 4s, 5s...)
Choral count with fractions before asking students to count their collections by fractions.
