Whenever I use Counting Frames I am always amazed at the children's excitement when offered the opportunity to count 'large' numbers near the end of the activity. For example, the lesson in the photo below began by counting the number of children present. Then asking the mathematician's question |

- showed counting by twos by masking our own frame and sticking our fingers in the gaps.
- knew it was ten, but checked it in other ways.
- plugged some 'people' into the gaps.
Now suppose we put all our people boards in one long line.
How many people do you think there are? Would you like to check your guess? You bet they would like to... Doug. Williams, consultant |
