Hypothesis and trends

Children are quite confident in counting forwards. With my teaching experience over the years I have always found that they always struggle when it comes to counting backwards, saying the number that comes before. I think that they may not understand the term before, backward, or that it means one less. Not only have I heard this in the junior school but across most year levels.

  1. we have had lots of success teaching counting backwards and subtraction using number songs and rhymes. We use lots of visuals props and students to act it out seems to help with developing the concept and the language. We write our own rhymes base on our class and topic themes. We then model the numbers and subtraction equations AND its fun and interactive! Check this link out for free ones to download
