Counting and Grouping Strategies

As we continue to work on counting and grouping strategies, we learned a new game called Mingle. To play mingle, the crew mingled around the room until I called out a phrase like "groups of 2" or "groups of 3". Then they had to form groups with that many people in that group. We then talked about why sometimes our groups didn't come out even.

Then we practiced counting large groups of items that we pictured on paper and so couldn't be moved around. We talked about various strategies to use to count them - crossing them out as we counted them, drawing circles around groups of 2, 5 or 10, etc. We all worked very hard to count the large groups of items carefully using a strategy that made sense to us.

Reading ~ Read a good book or two.
Math ~ Practice counting by 2s and 5s and making tally marks that represent various numbers.
