Lesson Transcript
Instructor: Heather Jenkins

Heather has a bachelor's degree in elementary education and a master's degree in special education. She was a public school teacher and administrator for 11 years.

Counting is an important skill that we use every day. Did you know that there is more than one way to count objects? In this lesson, you will learn different ways to count the numbers 1 to 100.

Counting by Ones

Candy, coins, trading cards, toys, bites of vegetables that your parents make you eat at dinner. . . all of these things can be counted. Whether it's keeping score in games, playing hopscotch, or counting down while playing hide-and-seek, you probably count more than you realize. What are some things you count? How do you count them?

One tool to help with counting and looking at the numbers 1 to 100 is called a hundreds board. A hundreds board shows all the numbers 1 to 100 and is organized in rows with 10 numbers per row. You can start at any number and move your finger from number to number as you count forwards or backwards.

You will notice that after you reach 10, the next numbers are 11, 12, 13, 14, 15, 16, 17, 18, 19, and 20. This pattern is repeated where the first number in each row ends in a 1 (1, 11, 21. . . all the way to 91) and the last number in each row ends in a 0 (10, 20, 30. . . all the way to 100). For each number in a row, the first digit stays the same and tells you how many sets of 10 are in that number. For example, imagine you are counting 34 rubber ducks, you would have 3 piles of 10 rubber ducks, and another pile with only 4 rubber ducks in it.
