Tear the roof off!!
Here's something I did to address the poor counting my students had (6 & 7 year olds).
Beware! You have to have control as otherwise they get over competitive!
Split the class into teams (with names ofcourse!), preferably sitting in a row so that they are together in an ordered arrangement.
The game is easy - the team counts from 1 - 20 (or all the tens; odds; evens; etc) and you time them.
The team who counts the fastest wins.
This tore the roof off our lessons!!! The kids started counting 1-20 in about 20 secs, but after a few weeks they were doing it in 6!!
Once 1-20 was sorted we moved on.....and their counting was perfect!
