Counting for kids or adults is basically addressing the following:

  1. Knowing the sequence of numbers
  2. Knowing the concept of what is a count

The sequence of numbers is knowing about 1,2,3,4 and so, on. This sequence itself can be chunked into smaller segments:

  • Counting 1-5
  • Counting 1-10
  • Counting 10-50
  • Counting 1-50
  • Counting 1-100

Any such segmentation, helps simplify the task of learning the sequence. The ‘Counting’ course has few such sections and appropriate educational games in it. E.g. In the video given below there is a game called ‘Drag the stone game’. In this game, there are a series of stones placed in sequence. The student has to drag the next stone in the sequence to allow the boy to jump. In case the wrong stone is placed, the software speaks out and shows the correct answer. Multiple attempts are allowed. So that by playing the game repeatedly, students learn the counting sequence.

For teaching the concept of counting, there are educational games where the student has to place the correct number of items on a table or box. Alternatively, the student has to count the number of items on a given object(s), such as dice and select the correct number. Several such games are there in the ‘Counting’ course:

  • Counting blocks
  • counting dots on dice
  • counting tally marks
  • counting coins
  • counting teddy bears
  • counting toys
  • counting fruit
