Reflection: Developing a Conceptual Understanding Towers, Towers, Towers 6-10 - Section 3: Activity


It's very important not to overwhelm kindergartners. Many come to the classroom with little to no one to one counting experience. Counting anything past groups of three is a challenge for them. It's important to provide ample practice in counting groups of objects in small clusters such as, 0-3, 4-5, 6-8 and 9-10. Once the kids are able to accurately count groups of objects to 10, then you can start practicing with larger clusters such as 0-5 and 6-10.
