Hi Jency,

Now teach him the tens. then show him the number chart to see the number patterns. Draw a number grid with some missing numbers. Start filling the number grid. He will start saying the numbers automatically. But keep counting coins, beads, beans, children in the plaground, , vehicles anything you see around you.

I think you only need to teach him 10,20,30 and so on. They catch the rest themselves and will say from 31 - 39 and so on. Will only need prompting when the 10's counter changes. He needs to understand the logic.

Keep counting everything - he will automatically get them .

number grid is the best way to teach counting from 1-100..when you count objects around you, you cant go beyond 15-20  i guess..for bigger numbers, its best to use number grids. you may make a grid on a poster paper and stick on a wall in his room. you may also buy a math-notebook and use the grids made in it to do activities like fill up the missing numbers in the grid, find a particular number in the grid given, highlight all numbers that start with f sound, highlight all the 2's in the grid etc

you may also play tambola and snakes-ladders with your child..its a great way to teach number grid !
