Children start off life unable to count, and then they must learn to count…but then they must learn not to count! This video shows the value in making this 3-stage journey explicit to children. The real value coming in the child’s ability to see for themselves that ‘not counting’ is the most simple but effective number skill they will ever learn! The video also encourages the teacher to take responsibility for eliminating a possible retreat back to the domain of counting.
