Counting Collections
We are all counting at Lyseth School.

Our students are building and strengthening their understanding of numbers as they work through engaging tasks that utilize manipulatives. Lyseth is not alone in this effort; all of Portland's elementary schools are focused on providing these opportunities for students to learn mathematics.

Adults enjoy participating in these activities as much as our students. Lyseth's teachers have attended professional development sessions where they have also been counting!
