Activity Instructions

Say to a student, “Choose a number and then walk to it.” Ask the student, “How many steps would you have to take to reach nine?” Child figures it out (either visually or can jump to nine) and answers. For example, if they choose to stand on 5, then answer that it would take 4 steps to reach 9, then the adult responds, “Yes, 5 plus 4 makes 9.” If the student answers incorrectly, have them count again.
