How to teach children to count in 3’s and 4’s:

There are numerous ways to learn to count in 3’s and 4’s but the best one is by singing and dancing, children just love it. Most of the teachers say children grasp songs far quicker than any other way.

This YouTube video focuses on counting in 3’s. It’s very interactive and my kids enjoy them a lot.
