Another AMAZING FREE counting tool

Last week, I posted about Flip Counter which is a great free tool for counting forward and backwards by 1's, 10's and 100's.  After reading this post, a teaching friend suggested another counting tool to me.  

This tool is the Super Sequencer.  As much as I love Flip Counter and will continue to use it in K-3 classrooms, the possibilities for Super Sequencer are amazing.  Check this out!

This is what the start page looks like.  You can enter the start number of your choice as well as what you want to count by.  You then choose if you want it to count slow, medium or fast.  Love the choices!

For young children, I can pick a number under 100 and have it count by 1's

Something else that is amazing: you can enter a negative number and get it to count backwards!

Here is what happens when you click on instructions.  Look at all the options! 
You can enter a decimal number as your start number and/or  your increment!

Here is what it looks like when it is counting.  You can pause it at any time as well hit rewind to start back at the beginning.  
I can see myself using the Super Sequencer in grades K-6!  I love finding a tool that is free and easy to use and can be adapted to so many situations.  

For more fun free ways to increase your students' counting abilities, check out the estimating and counting routines I do in my classroom!


  1. That is such a cool website!!! I have already shared it with my co-workers and can't wait to use it tomorrow with my kiddos! Thanks!

    1. It is very neat! I had not heard of it until a few weeks ago and now I can't get enough.
