Counting with the Right Tools!

My students need these Rekenreks to help them count by tens and ones to 100. These tools will help them build benchmarks (groups) of 5 & 10 to help with efficient counting strategies.

My Students

My students are in a Title 1 school from Frederick. They are eager Kindergarten and 1st grade students who love to play and learn. They have fantastic personalities which are easily evident as soon as you see them in action.

They love to use math manipulatives in their workshops to work with each other and explain their math thinking.

It never ceases to amaze me how using concrete materials helps to get their thinking into words. I love to see how they grow and learn everyday!

My Project

Counting to 100 is a foundational math skill in Kindergarten and First grade. However, just learning to say the numbers in the right order is only half the battle. Students need to be able to count objects while saying the numbers names (using one to one) and create sets of objects for specific numbers up to 100.

These counting skills will provide them with a strong foundation when learning to add and subtract, so having the right tools can make all the difference in achieving this goal.

The 100 rekenreks provide students with the ability to have organized counters when learning to count with one to to one. They can see groups of 5 and 10 as they are able, start counting at numbers other than 1, and/or count by tens and then on by ones.
