Learning start and end numbers help children to flow in their counting skills. Children usually have difficulty in knowing the number that comes next when they get to the end of a series. Example, when they get to ‘29’ they usually find it hard to remember ’30’ except you prompt them. Mastering the end numbers up to 100, will help them flow in their counting.
