Can You See?
What to do:
- start the
game by asking,
many girls are there here today?"
many boys are there here today?"
- wait for answer,
confirm together by counting heads out loud and then continue with,
many people have their shoes on today?"
many boys and girls have red hair?"
many chairs are there at this table?"
many blue cars can you see?"
many babies are there here today?" "How many signs
can you see?"
many pictures are on this page?"
many pages are there in this newspaper (just
take about 5 to 10 pages)", etc. etc.
- call upon
different children to answer different questions
- always verify
their answers by all focusing on the subject in question and counting
together out loud
- count by ones
- count loudly,
slowly, and clearly
- continue game
until children are tired or lose interest
- encourage children
to ask the "How many questions" of each other
- let them take turns
