teen numbers

Review Teen Numbers: Teen numbers are made up of a ten and some ones. Sing with Harry Kindergarten to review your teen numbers. Then, print the math page in the In-Hand packet to practice.

Use the same worksheet, parents may need to assist in the counting by handing your child the markers you are using to fill the boxes one at a time and counting with your child. Give your child only the amount you are counting to so as not to count past your number.

You may need to do this activity as a highly prompted one where you help your child count or mark off boxes while you count aloud. Try to cover up the boxes you wont be filling so your child doesn’t go past where they should. After you do it together try again but start counting then leave space before you say the next number so that your child can fill it in him/her self. If your child isn’t talking, have them point and you count aloud.
