Count along with the Count from 1 - 10!

Count along in Kindergarten and Grade 1!

(potentially some Grade 2 learners)

Connections to math curriculum (K-1):

*Identifying the numbers by the word and number itself.*

*Read and represent whole numbers from 1 to 10. Become more familiar with seeing all the numbers.*

*Recall and demonstrate addition facts for numbers up to 10.*

1+1+1+1+1 =5

*Use objects to represent, describe, and solve situations involving the addition of whole numbers*

- 4 bats to represent the number four

- 1 bat +1 bat +1 bat +1 bat = 4 bats

*Grouping objects into certain numeric amounts:*

- nine alligators

- nine Chihuahuas

- nine snakes

- nine bats

- nine birds

- etc.

**Follow-Up Math Activity!**

Using any resources from around the classroom, create a variety of groupings for the numbers 1-10.

(1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10).

Use a different grouping of objects for each number.

(Just like they did in the book!!)
