We will read Ten Apples On Top and Ten Red Apples and count apples on our heads!

In math this week we are focusing on number recognition and counting to 20.   This week we’re going to doing small group math all week so I can focus my instruction in a more targeted way.  Some groups will be working on number recognition and counting to 5 or 10.  Some will be working solely on counting to 20.
One of the activities I am using for number recognition is our  Number Recognition Race!    Click the image to see my blog post a video about this fun and very effective game!!
