Election year! A great time to think about a king who had so many commissioners that he had to ask his royal advisors to count them up!  The king could only count by ones.  He was perturbed when one royal advisor counted by twos, and another by fives.  Then the royal princess counted by tens, and explained how they each used a different way to count, but they all got the same answer!

Math Topics:

Skip counting.  Patterns in the hundred chart.  Using a hundred chart for mental math.!
