Fill those extra ten minutes of math time with this fun counting activity. Given a short sequence of numbers, young mathematicians stand in a circle and count one-by-one until the last number is reached, at which point the whole group claps and the last child has a seat in the middle of the circle. The rest of the group then repeats the process until only one person is left standing. The flexibility of this activity allows teachers to choose number sequences that focus on specific trouble spots, or that introduce young scholars to skip counting and counting backward. This quick and simple activity can be performed anytime, anywhere and engages primary grade learners in developing this fundamental math skill.

#### New Review Start/Stop Counting II

Take stroll around the classroom while teaching young mathematicians to count fluently with this whole-group math activity. The teacher starts things off by walking around the room while counting up from the number one and continues until he/she stops and taps a student on the shoulder. At this point, the teacher and student switch positions and the child resumes the count, with this process being repeated until the entire class has been given the chance to participate. Once students are comfortable counting forward by ones, consider extending the activity by introducing skip counting or counting backward. Use this activity as a transition into daily math lessons, or to fill time following a lesson that ends early.

*The Count of Monte Cristo*

*.*Students may submit their answers to be scored.

*The Penny Pot*and identify the value of coins. Students complete a worksheet to practice counting coins.

*Mouse Count*and pretend to count mice. This lesson is very cute and helps kids count forward and backward from 0 to 10.
