counting......

I am always looking for new ways to teaching counting to the kiddos

the toucans I have used in the past to glue cheerios on or the pompoms
but this time around I had the kids use the dot markers
they put a dot per number
1. we identify the number
2. we placed a dot(s) on the bird
3. we counted the number and moved to the next one 
(example - 1 do dots, 2 count one, two then do dots, 3 one two three then do dots)
most kids did 8 and two did up to 12






once all the birds had a dot we counted them all and then we also named the colors

what we worked on:
counting
colors
following directions
attending
sharing
