Skip Counting

When I ask my kids to “skip count” their favorite first answer is: “One, Two, Skip a few, Ninety-Nine…..ONE HUNDRED!”

Students in our Believe In Me School in Jingzhou, Hubei Province have been learning to skip count…which, as you know, means so much more than simply counting. Skip counting involves grouping numbers, patterning and sequencing – important skills in mathematics and literacy. We loved seeing the kids learn with colorful beads…but the help they gave each other in mastering these skills.

Thank you to the sponsors and donors that made this learning possible for these students. To learn more about LWB students in need of sponsorship for educational opportunities please visit:
