Meet Chip! He’s not just your average chocolate chip cookie! He will teach your students how to count words in a sentence! As Chip works his way from left to right across the sentence, his cookie crumbs fall in the spaces between the words in the sentence. That is how Chip knows where one word ends and another begins. Chip’s friend, Cheese the mouse, knows to go right to the spaces in between the words so he can catch the cookie crumbs! He says, “yum, yum, cookie crumb!”
