Star Counting (to 100)4:12 PM
Last week we practiced some Skip Counting by tens up to 100. This week we counted to 100 using stars (we sort of have a space theme going on). The first way we did it was using a piece of paper with numbers 1-100 written on it. I then had the girls count each number as they put a star sticker on it (they love stickers).
The second way we counted was using star shaped beads and egg cartons. I was hoping I had 10 egg cartons saved for each girl, but I didn't. So each one had a single egg carton cut down to just 10 holes.
I had them count as they placed one bead in each hole. Then I had them repeat with each set of 10 until each hole had 10 beads in it (100 all together). Then we could skip count using each hole as a set of ten.
