Counting from 6 to 15

This video illustrates the use of manipulatives to help students practice counting skills such as correspondence and cardinality while applying a counting on strategy. When students practice counting with manipulatives they learn to recognize that number names are stated in a standard order, each number word is paired with one and only one object, and the last number stated in the sequence tells the number of total objects counted in the set. When students use a counting on strategy, they refine their knowledge of number placement along the number line and practice efficient counting strategies that will be necessary to solve simple arithmetic problems.
