*This child is an example of a counting-on child.*

*When presented with 8 screened counters and 5 screened counters the child successfully counts on from 8 to calculate the total. *

*When presented with 4 screened counters and then asked how many more to make 9, the child successfully counts on from 4 up to 9 to calculate the missing addend. *

*The child has secure knowledge of how use count-on and count-up-to strategies.*

*This child is not yet able to use a count back strategy to solve subtraction tasks. The child reverts back to perceptual replacements (fingers) to calculate subtraction tasks and is therefore limited to subtraction within 10.*
