Pocket Chart & Music: Making Counting Fun! - Enchanted Homeschooling Mom

One of our daily routing is our Circle Time, in which we always incorporate counting in some way. For the past month we have been learning to count to 100, but just counting to 100 can be difficult for young learners, so that is why using a visual content such as a Pocket Chart and Music for repetition is always a great way to pull students into the lesson.

We have been using our Numbers Pocket Chart to count to 100. Not only by using the Pocket Chart Kaelyn has a better understanding of number order but also number recognition. I can definitely see big improvements on her higher numbers. She still gets stuck once we get to 70, but she is starting to recognize numbers without having to count and look for it on her chart.

Another fun way to help with counting and to use with your Pocket Chart is to use music. We have been using Jack Hartmann’s Moving to Math {Let’s Get Fit Counting to 100 by 1’s}. It’s a counting exercise song. While the girls count and do their movements I stand in front of the Pocket Chart and point to each number with a pointer as they count the numbers. Even Kaidence who is only 2 years old is starting to recognize numbers herself. Just yesterday she pointed to the number 2 and 9 and is beginning to count to 10! Not only are the girls counting, singing, but they are also getting some energy out at the same time!

Below is a Video with Jack Hartmann’s Song and Visual!
