Assessment Strategies

### Assessment Strategies

Students should master rote counting to 10 before counting forward from a number other than 1.

Students may have to begin with smaller numbers and progress to greater numbers.

Teacher may limit how far the students count then increase the range to 100 when students are ready.

### Variation Tips

Once your students have mastered orally counting to 100 by ones beginning with any given number other than 1, you can increase the rigor by requiring them to orally count by 10's to 100 beginning at any given number other than 10.
