Instructional Module: Counting Strategies

In this Media4Math Classroom Module, your early elementary students will build on their counting skills by combining Skip Counting and Counting On. Using graphics, videos, and games, students are introduced to more challenging counting scenarios that also pave the way for later developing their addition skills. Specifically, students are shown how to combine Skip Counting and Counting On to quickly and accurately count large numbers of items.

Four assessment items are included in this module, along with the standard features of allowing you to create a class roster to test student progress. The Media4Math Classroom Modules are flexible. They can be used for classroom demonstration purposes, or in a distance learning environment. They can also be assigned to individual students.
