How high can you count? Here is a poem to help you remember the numbers 110.
One, two, buckle my shoe
Three, four, shut the door
Five, six, pick up sticks
Seven, eight, lay them straight
Nine, ten, a big fat hen
Now, can you count higher? How about counting to one hundred or one thousand? Use the counting chart to practice saying and writing the numbers 1100. Then try the counting quiz. Soon you will be able to count to one billion!
