Sort and Count II
Capture the engagement of young mathematicians with this hands-on sorting activity. Given a bag of objects, students work independently sorting the items based on their physical attributes, counting to determine the size of each group. This process is repeated as young learners explore different ways of sorting the same set of objects.

Counting Lesson Plan
In whole group practice, children count together and identify how many objects are drawn on butcher paper, increasing the number when they have achieved fluency. In pairs, they count manipulatives. They then copy series of numbers from the board, write numbers for practice, and fill in the blanks with missing numbers.
