Help your child practice coutning objects by having him or her count things like money or pieces of candy in a large bag. When counting nickels and dimes, encourage your child to count by fives and tens. When counting a great number of pennies or candies, suggest grouping them by tens to facilitate the counting procedure in order to find the total.
