Down for the Count: Math Games
 In Excel Math, students learn to count, skip-count, use expanded notation and add (plus lots more). We've pulled together some resources for counting and some online math games to reinforce counting skills. Do you have some favorite counting games? Leave us a comment in the box below. Excel Math Projectable Lessons include lots of counting activities and math lessons that can be projected onto a whiteboard, electronic board, wall or screen. Each grade level of Projectable Lessons comes on its own CD. The best part is that you only need one CD per grade level for each school site! The Projectable first shows the lesson with problems. The next slide shows the work and solutions in red. Additional text and graphics and color may be used to clarify complex concepts.

 During the summer, children practice counting while jumping rope, playing hopscotch or jacks, shooting hoops on the basketball court, and keeping score while playing sports. Computer time, too, can provide a chance to practice counting and addition.
