Kindergarteners Count by 5s and 10s

Throughout the school year, kindergarteners in Diane Schulteis’ class practice counting by 5s and 10s. Every 10 days, a fictional character named Zero the Hero “visits” kindergarten as part of a lesson and students countdown to zero by 5s and 10s. For the 60th day of school, students made turkeys with six feathers. Students practiced counting by 10s on the feathers, writing the number 10, 20, 30, etc. on each feather.
