A set of 6 wall charts to show teachers and parents the complexities of learning to count. My parents and other teachers just love learning how to effectively help their children become robust counters. I use the charts as a personal reminder and a checklist when teaching and listening to children count.
Research into children’s counting identifies these 6 critical, discrete principles, which indicate a child has moved from saying the number names as nouns, in sequence, to knowing numbers are adjectives describing how many objects are in a collection.
An example, a misconception or partial concept is included on each chart to clarify the principle.
