Skip Counting for Kindergarten Teresa Mazzara How do we count faster?
Introduction Ask children the question. When counting pennies or friends in our class, is there a faster way to count them? Use a circle map to list their responses.
Counting by 2’s Let a small group of children who wear tennis shoes face their classmates. Choose one child to count the shoes aloud. Then, count again, saying odd numbers softly and the even numbers loud. For ex. 1(soft sound),2 (loud sound),3 (soft sound), 4 (loud sound),etc. Write the numbers 2,4,6,8,10,etc. on the screen. Children can practice on the 100 chart (counting by 2’s). This can be color coded to see those even numbers.
Using Technology to Reinforce Skills Technology is a tool that makes learning fun. The game integrates Technology and Math TEKS. Children master the skill. Frog Skip Counting Game
