My ds needs to learn to count in ten's, he can sort of count up to 40 and recognises numbers up to 20, is this a case of counting 1-10, 10-20, 20-30, 30-40, 40-50 and so on? He is is reception.

I know I can ask the school but it is quicker to ask here grin

I think it means being able to say 10, 20, 30, 40, 50, 60 to 100 and maybe back down from 100 to 0. (100, 90, 80).

If he's a bit older it might possibly mean to be able to start from 2 (or any other number) for eg. 2, 22, 32, 42, 52...... Hope this makes sense.

Sorry, just seen he's in reception. Pretty sure it's just 10, 20, 30, 40 etc up to 100.

Great thank you!, I think he can do that, so is obviously not showing them at school smile

When you next see a thermometer you can show him that there are numbers below 0 too!
