LET'S COUNT ONE, TWO, THREE, FOUR, AND FIVE!
Begin from "one" and count in sequence to "five".
Count your fingers.
Count all the items from the previous lesson and whatever else you can find.
Take a marker and on paper draw five large circles with a number inside each circle. Put 1 inside the first circle and 2 inside the second circle. Put 3 inside the third circle, 4 inside the fourth circle and 5 inside circle number five. Then point to the circles and count: one, two, three, four, five.
Take a marker and draw one square, two squares, three squares, four squares and five squares. Number each group of squares: one, two, three, four, five. Count them together. When counting two squares, count both squares by saying; one, two. When counting three squares, count all three squares individually by saying; one, two, three. Repeat until you've counted all five groups.
Take some colored construction paper and punch out holes with a hole punch. You will have a whole lot of holes punched out. Glue the holes onto a piece of white construction paper in groups of five. You may want to spread out the punched out holes onto a larger paper or lightweight spray painted white board. Whatever you do, spread out all those punched out holes in groups of five so you have numerous groups to count. Then take time to count them together several times each day.
You might even want to create a design or some sort of interesting picture with the punched out holes. Take five of one color, then five of another color, five of still another color, and so on. You will have many groups of five of one color in the creation of your picture. When finished, count all the groups: one, two, three, four, five...... one, two, three, four five...... and so on.
When you have taken about a week to count one, two, three, four, and five. Now you might want to begin counting "six", "seven", and "eight". Click here to go to the next level.
