Extending this activity

  • -Play this game in the car, giving prompts such as “Start at five and count to ten. Ready, set, go!”

    -Read the book “Big Fat Hen” by Keith Baker. In this story, the hen lays eggs in sets of two. Practice adding on two to predict the number of eggs on the next page.

Adjust for an older child

The older child will be able to complete the activity without holding up fingers. Try challenging him or her to count higher and begin at a higher number. For example, “Count to 20 beginning at 13.”

Adjust for a younger child

Younger children need ample experience counting to ten before you begin skipping numbers. Therefore, this activity may not be appropriate for young children.
