5-Minute any-time counting game

Introducing Numbers 1-10. To play requires simply a softball.

1. Stand in a circle holding hands
2. Kick the softball to, not at, each other
3. Restart the count if the ball goes outside the circle
4. Praise students for counting aloud with you

• This activity can work equally well with counting by 2, by 5, or the alphabet.

Robot Shape Guess Counting Game

This is a fantastic game, review or warm up activity I use with children ages 4-7. If there are parents in the room try a Students vs Parents battle. The students usually win.

Show the children the robot picture for 2 seconds and ask how many circles, squares, triangles or stars they saw! Print the preview and try it for yourself. Deceptively challenging yet fun.
