Today I want to share with you a great tool to use on your computer, projector or SMART board to help your students practice many important counting skills
This is a demonstration tool provided by ict games. You can set it to any number between 0 and 9,999. You can then count forward or backwards by ones, tens, hundreds or thousands. It is a great tool to use for counting forward and backward. here are some pictures of it in action.
|This is the zero screen|
|Here my Kindergarten students are using it to count forward by ones starting at any number|
|Here my first graders are working on bridging the century an counting backwards within 120.|
|Here my second graders started at 814 and counted by 100's. They get so excited to get into these "really big" numbers.|
|Here is a screen shot of the directions page. It takes about 20 seconds to learn how to use and then you are ready to go!|
