Counting By 5's All The Way To 100
Grace amazed me on the car ride home from music group yesterday. I could hear her quietly counting by 5's all the way up to 100 along with a Ron Brown numbers CD. I couldn't believe my ears so I asked Grace to count by 5's again without the CD and she did it again all by herself. To reinforce the concept of counting by 5's, Grace & I used Unifix cubes and make twenty rods this morning - each rod being five blocks in length. We lined up the rods so Grace could visually see the number 5 and visualize how many 5's it takes to make 100. Grace demonstrated excellent 1:1 correspondence skills by individually pointing to each rod while counting by 5's up to 100. Way to go, Gracie girl. I'm so proud of you!
