Counting Tool / June 6, 2018 / Priscilla Salisbury
For kids who are able to read and need an extra challenge, they can spell the words out loud after they match up the puzzles for an extended activity. This is especially good for auditory learners because they can not only see how the number is spelled, but they can hear it as well.
Names based on inclusive counting appear in other calendars as well: in the Roman calendar the nones (meaning "nine") is 8 days before the ides; and in the Christian calendar Quinquagesima (meaning 50) is 49 days before Easter Sunday. Musical terminology also uses inclusive counting of intervals between notes of the standard scale: going up one note is a second interval, going up two notes is a third interval, etc., and going up seven notes is an octave.
