I am counting in my sleep, with an emphasis on 14, 15, 16 and 17. We created 18 birds yesterday! We spent the whole day counting, re-counting. Many of us are getting tripped up on 14 and 15.
We glued the number 18 onto our papers.
When we use thumb prints for art, I spread the paint thinly onto a paper plate. This helps the kids to create thumbprints that are less blobby.
Boy did it take a while, and 18 is a large number. We all counted together to 18 with each child as they created 18 thumb prints.
We re-counted to 18 as each child drew legs onto each thumbprint.
We counted AGAIN, one beak for each bird.
We counted again for each eye. Repetition can really help us get over the confusion about the order of the numbers.
Out into the rain we went!
