Learning Objectives

Students are able to count an object saying the number name.

### Activity Details

1. Show students the video and have students sing and dance along with the video counting the objects on the screen.

2. After showing the video, have students pair up with another student and assign each pair a number.

3. On a piece of paper, partners illustrate their assigned number then present it to the class by reading their number aloud and counting the objects they drew to represent their number.

Assessment Strategies

### Assessment Strategies

The teacher should walk around the room to observe students' progress in counting the numbers in a standard order and matching numbers with the correct quantity of objects represented in their illustrations. These observations will serve as a formative assessment.

### Variation Tips

Students can form numbers out of playdough, Wikki stix, pipe cleaners, or linking cubes while counting objects continuing to repeat the number rhymes. Students can take turns "being the teacher" counting objects and modeling the correct number formations while repeating the number rhymes.

### Total Duration

0 to 15 Minutes

### Background / Preparation

Teachers will need an internet-connected device to show the video.

Students will need paper and a pencil for the illustrations.

Provide students with a variety of objects to count through independent and small group counting collections for additional practice.
