# Summer Counting Practice Worksheet

The Summer Counting Practice Worksheet is used to help children practice counting backwards, and also to teach the student how to do this in their own handwriting. This worksheet was designed by Mary Pappas and has a very simple format that does not require a lot of explaining and learning.

## Summer Counting Practice Worksheet

The first thing that the student will need to do is to find the blank sheet. They will then need to take out the pen, paper, scissors and pencil. They will need to write the number of items that they want to count on the sheet. For example, if they wish to count up to nine, they would simply write the number of items that they are going to count from one to nine. Once the first line has been written, they will need to repeat this process for each row that they want to count.

Once all the rows have been written down, the student should then fill in the last line that states, “count backwards.” The student is going to want to start off by writing their word backwards. Next, they are going to write the number of the item that is being counted from one to nine. After that, they will need to stop. At the bottom of the sheet, the child is going to write down the total number of items that they have written on the sheet. After the first row has been completed, the child can move on to the next row.

Once the students have written the rows of the sheet in order, they can then break the time frame that is listed. This will help to prevent the student from getting bored, and it will help them to work together. If the time frame that is listed is ten minutes, then they should begin to count the items in the same way that they would count an item if the time frame was three minutes. The student is only going to use the number of items that are written down in each line to count. For example, if the number of items written on the first line is four, then they would simply count four as a unit.

The child is then going to need to write down what the item is again after they have finished counting it. They need to write the item in its correct spot, and they are then going to need to check to see how many lines they have written. The student should then repeat the process as many times as necessary. The last thing that needs to be done is to write the final line to confirm that they are counting in the right direction. If the student does everything right, then the student should be able to write down all of the items that they need to count from one to nine without looking at the sheet. When the child is done counting, they will then need to check their answer to see how many they need to write to finish the sheet.

In conclusion, these Summer Counting Practice Worksheets are an easy way for students to practice the counting skills that they will need in school. They will learn the basic steps that are needed in order to write the answers down.
