Once children have gained facility with counting,and with counting by groups, especially groups of 10's and perhaps 100's,and 1000's (i.e., knowing that when you group things by 100's and 1000'sthat the series go "100, 200, 300, ... 900, 1000; and 1000, 2000, 3000,etc.), I believe it is better to start them out learning about the kindof representational group values that children seem to have no troublewith -- such as colors, as in poker chips (or color tiles, if you feelthat "poker" chips are inappropriate for school children; poker chips arejust inexpensive, available, easy to manipulate, and able to be stacked).Only one needs not, and should not, talk about "representation", but merelyset up some principles like "We have these three different color pokerchips, white ones, blue ones, and red ones. Whenever you have ten whiteones, you can exchange them for one blue one; or any time you want to exchangea blue one for ten white ones you can do that. And any time you have tenBLUE ones, you can trade them in for one red one, or ."Then you can show them how to count ten blue ones (representing ten's),saying "10, 20, 30,...,90, 100" so they can see, if they don't already,that a red one is worth 100. Then you do some demonstrations, such as puttingdown eleven white ones and saying something like "if we exchange 10 ofthese white ones for a blue one, what will we have?" And the children willusually say something like "one blue one and one white one". And you canreinforce that they still make (i.e., represent) the same quantity "Andthat then is still eleven, right? [Pointing at the blue one] Ten [thenpointing at the white one] and one is eleven." Do this until they catchon and can readily and easily represent numbers in poker chips, using mixturesof red, blue, and white ones. In this way, they come to understand grouprepresentation by means of colored poker chips, though you do not use theword representation, since they are unlikely to understand it.
