Count the Kids:
One of the daily activities in my classroom is to “Count the Kids”. This is a great activity to promote math/counting skills as the students count the numbers of students at school in different ways/groupings each day. These full-color visuals can help you do just that.
The “counting groups” that you can make with these cards are:
girls & boys
long sleeves & short sleeves
long hair & short hair
curly hair & straight hair
stripes & no stripes
long pants & short pants
pockets & no pockets
flowers & no flowers
zippers & no zippers
glasses & no glasses
“Call the Groups” Transition Visuals:
In addition, in this set are 22 “Call the Groups” visuals to be used as you call groups of kids to move into a transition. (“Everyone with buttons on their clothes line up.” “Everyone with polka dots on their clothes go and wash hands.”, etc.) Of course, any of the 22 “Count the Kids” cards could also be used to call different groups during transitions, as well.
Included in the Transition Cards are these visuals to use for calling groups:
(wearing a) skirt
(wearing hair in) ponytails
(wearing) polka dots
(wearing a) scarf
(wearing a) vest
(wearing a) hat
(wearing a) headband
All of the cards (the “Count the Kids” and the “Transition” cards) come in both 5.5” x 8.5” (1/2 of a letter-sized piece of paper), as well as 4.25” x 5.5” (1/4 of a letter-sized piece of paper) to best suit your needs.
