-Find other opportunities to practice counting. For example, teach your child rhymes such as "One, two, buckle my shoe. Three, four, shut the door. Five, six, pick up sticks. Seven, eight, lay them straight. Nine, ten, do it again!"
-Read the book "Bears on Wheels" by Stan and Jan Berenstain and count out all the bears on each page with the child.
Adjust for an older child
The older child can count to 30 while washing his or her hands.
Adjust for a younger child
The younger child may not be able to count to 15. You can count with the child until he or she stops. Then just continue counting to model the correct sequence.
