Using Counting Collections to Develop Mathematical Thinking LIMITED
Feedback form is now closed.
Limited Capacity seats available

Counting Collections is a structured activity that allows children of all ages to count a given set of objects, document that set, and tell how many there are. This may sound like an easy task for students, but there is much more to it than counting! It’s not just for “little” kids. See how students (PK-3) develop the counting sequence, 1:1 correspondence, cardinality, place value, grouping (multiplication), adding, skip counting sorting, patterns and equivalence as well as properties of operations. You will see examples of open and closed collections, various recording methods and sample recording sheets. You will leave with practical strategies for implementing this routine into your classroom.
