Strive for Five
Once you are accurate with single productions, start moving towards 5 at a time.
Chunking targets into sets of 5 lets us produce and track many more repetitions during a homework session.
It is much easier to have your child count to 20 (sets of 5) then it is to count to one hundred.
Develop a rhythm to saying the sets of 5.
This will help with counting the sets.
It will also help the child get into a flow state where the work is less effortful.
This is important!
If your child is having trouble focusing or getting in a rhythm you can tap out the sets of 5 on their fingers.
Do this by having them place their hand flat on the table and tap each finger while counting out the set of 5.
Remember to add your rhythm.
