We recently observed that sacred school holiday: the 100th day of school. My three-year-old is working on counting to 100, and he has been using a 10 x 10 matrix.  Ours is just a print-out in a dry erase sheet, but laminating one would accomplish the same thing.  It’s durable enough that he can take it in the car for practice while we’re commuting, and he can use dry erase markers or counters for a variety of games.  Shown here, I was calling out numbers and he was placing a counter on them.

I’ve seen many posters and displays to help kids learn to count, but I always think simple, clean, and clear are the keys to success.

What tools have you found successful for counting practice?
