Learning Objectives

### Learning Objectives

Students are able to count to answer "how many?" questions regarding objects in a scattered configuration.

Students are able to count no more than 10 objects in a scattered configuration.

### Activity Details

1. Print off the numeral cards and the picture cards containing a set of objects.
2. Next, give half of the students a numeral card and the other half of the students a picture card containing the corresponding number of objects.
3. Now tell the students to walk around the classroom until the teacher says, "How many do you have?"
4. Once the teacher asks, "How many do you have?", the students stop walking and find a partner that has their corresponding card.
5. Play several times to give the students a chance to play with a numeral card and with a picture card.
Assessment Strategies

### Assessment Strategies

While students are counting the objects on the picture card, make antidotal notes.

Check that the student:

1. is able to count sequentially.
2. is able to use one to one correspondence.
3. is able to match a set of objects to the corresponding numeral.

### Variation Tips

Once the students have mastered counting and matching numbers 0-10, play the game with numbers 0-20.

### Background / Preparation

Make a copy of the digital tool How Many Do I Have Partner Match Cards. Teachers may choose to laminate the cards and cut them out to make them sturdier in preparation for the game, "How Many Do I Have?".
