Counting from 5 to 12 Using a Story Problem

This video illustrates the use of manipulatives to help students practice solving story problems that require the use of counting skills such as correspondence, cardinality, and counting on. When students practice solving story problems with manipulatives, they are able to apply mathematics skills, such as counting, in a real-world context. The application of strategies and skills in a real-world context makes learned mathematics knowledge meaningful.
