Counting to One Hundred – Introduction
Get your thinking cap on because today we're going to practise counting to one hundred in ones! It's time to begin! Counting in ones means we count each number in order without skipping any. Ready? Let's go!
Why is Counting to One Hundred Important?
Counting to one hundred in ones is a fundamental skill that helps build a strong foundation in number recognition, sequencing and arithmetic. It prepares you for more advanced maths concepts.
Counting to one hundred helps improve your ability to count large quantities, understand number patterns and develop a sense of order and sequence. It's an essential skill for everyday activities and problemsolving.
Common Mistakes and How to Address Them
Mistake 1: Skipping Numbers
Sometimes, you might skip a number while counting, especially when you get to the tens (like twenty, thirty, etc.).
Solution: Use a number chart, hundred square or your fingers to ensure you say each number in order. Practise counting slowly to build accuracy.
Mistake 2: Losing Place
You might lose track of where you are, especially when counting beyond fifty.
Solution: Break the counting into smaller groups, such as counting to ten ten times. This makes it easier to keep track.
Mistake 3: Mixing Up Tens
Mixing up the order of numbers within each set of ten (e.g., saying twentyfour after twentysix).
Solution: Notice the pattern that each set of ten follows the same order as one to ten. Practise counting each set of ten separately.

We'll count together slowly at first, and then we'll try counting faster. Notice the patterns as we count, like how each group of ten starts a new set of numbers.
You will notice that we repeat the ones from one to nine each time after we start a new group of ten.
