SKIP Counting!

Wait...don't skip counting! I'm talking about counting by numbers other than 1. With the 100thth day of school almost here, we have been learning how to count up to higher numbers different ways. This week our focus have been counting by 5 and 10's which the kids are really enjoying. . We have sang some songs and looked for the pattern on the hundreds grid. This week ask your child to count to 100 by 10's and watch the video's below.
