Number recognition and counting from 1-100 is the foundation of math. After your child can identify a number, the next skills taught are skip counting (counting by 2's, 5's, and 10's) and identifying numbers on a hundred board. When a child is confident with these skills, it will help with addition, subtraction, money, and patterns.
Everyone has been learning skip counting skills through active participation and social interaction. These partner activities are non-threatening learning situations. You may need to have your keiki practice at home so they master this skip counting skill. They will be required to skip count by 2's, 5's, and 10's individually by January 2015.
K-1 keiki are asked to bring in an empty Campbell Soup can (10 3/4 oz) by December 1st. If you have any extra empty cans, we would appreciate it, too!
