In this lesson, kindergarteners will be given the chance to focus on their counting skills with engaging exercises and guided instruction. Just as identifying the letters of the alphabet is a precurser to reading, so is counting to developing maths fluency. Soon, your child will learn that the numbers they are counting have associated values, so the more practise they can get with counting the better.
