There are two ways to use this counting unit.
Option 1: Circle Time Activity
Place the 8 cards in your pocket chart. Say the rhyme and a color. Have a child go up to that backpack, turn it over, and count the school supplies.
Option 2: Math Center
Place the cards in front of the child along with the recording sheet. Have the child pick a card and color a backpack on their recording sheet the same color found on the card. Then, have the child turn over the card and count the supplies. They record the sum in the box next to the backpack. Numbers used in this unit are five through twelve.
