Counting

Supporting Mathematical Development in Young Children

This video describes children's understanding of quantity and their development of counting skills from rote to purposeful. It also provides examples of how early childhood professionals can both explicitly teach this skill and support its development through daily routines and play. This video was funded by the Connecticut Office of Early Childhood to support implementation of the CT Early Learning and Development Standards (CT ELDS). See more CT ELDS mathematics videos and resources for using them in professional development.
