The Counting Caterpillar

Curated and Reviewed by Lesson Planet

A daily counting routine builds a caterpillar with 100 body segments (marked with symbols to indicate 2s, 5s, and 10s) by the 100th day of school. Provides structured repetition as part of the morning routine so that by 100th day, learners can count to 100 several ways. Paired with a detailed daily counting of sticks that get bundled together every 10 days to introduce place value.
