100th Day Lesson in Counting

100 Days Tally Cup

Since September, Laurel has used a 100-chart, 100 mini popcicle sticks, rubber bands, and a recycled peanut butter jar to tally up to 100.

Each day she added a popcicle stick, re-counted the sticks in the jar, and found the total number on the 100-chart. As the days passed, she grouped the sticks together in bundles of ten and learned to skip count by tens.  

We will continue to use the mini popcicle sticks — also known as tally sticks — as we use the Level A math curriculum from RightStart Math.

One more post on the 100th day is yet to come; check back soon!
