The Best Way To Count A Group of Objects - Counting as a task within itself is quite complicated, and there is no point in making it more complicated than it already is. So, here is a very easy and the best method to help you count a group of objects. Count objects by making groups of 10. First, pick out all the objects that can be counted in tens such as 1, 20, 30, and so on. Once this step is done, you can easily get the individual numbers in groups of ones such as 5 6 7 and so on. When you count numbers in organized groups of tens or ones, the counting becomes easier and you can keep track of the numbers that you have counted. When you have no arrangement whatsoever, you can forget which number you were in and that would cause you to start counting from one again. These worksheets work on a wide range of skills to help students understand the concept of numbers and form them as well.
