Learning to Count to 100
My daughter is about half-way through kindergarten. I don’t know when she realized that she knows how to count, but it was recently.
“Mom!” she exclaimed as she caught my attention one day recently. “Numbers just go up and up! They never stop!”
We’ve explored the concept of 100 before, such as when we played with 100 paperclips and made a 100 train. And we have been practicing recognizing high numbers by practicing with hundreds charts. But this was the time when she realized she knew how to count. And once she got to 100, she knew it went up even farther!
What delight to see her eyes grow wide as she counted on: 101, 102, 103 . . .
Getting to this point was a matter of time to understand the concept. She also practiced with numbers up to 100 many times before she recognized her abilities to count.
Celebrating Counting to 100 Printable Freebie
To celebrate her accomplishment of counting to 100, we decided to make her a princess crown. I put 100 stars on it. As she was counting the stars, she sighed, “do I have to count them all right now?”
I assured her she could just color them on her crown. Her’s is bright pink, and I put a maze of 100 on it. I also made a more rounded crown (instead of the rounded points she wanted), and I made a version without the maze.
