Counting Collections

  • Counting Collections

    Julie Schwerdtfeger, Angela Chan
    How counting collections of objects helps elementary-age children develop number sense and number relations. The authors provide evidence that counting collections offers multiple entry points for children at different places on the counting trajectory. The teacher's role is one of noticing, questioning, and extending what children naturally do, moving them to more sophisticated strategies as children count, organize, and record their collections. Includes multiple examples of student work.
