Counting by Tens

Posted by Eilis on April 20, 2012 at 9:55 PM

My class is enjoying a counting activity that we have been doing when we line up this week.  The children take turns (from first in line to last) holding up ten fingers counting their part of the tens to 100.  (Jack says ten, Mary says twenty, Ann says thirty....)  We have performed our show for other classes waiting in the hall, much to the delight of my class.  We have also raised the bar by having Mrs. Meyer jump into the line so that everyone has to adjust their numbers and we end on 110.  I am hoping to try this with fives soon.  Each child would say five, ten, or fifteen, twenty, etc.

What has been working in your classroom?
