Help your Lil’ identify the number that they are working on (the number at the top of the page).
Count the objects that are printed on the paper.
Continue counting adding one paper counter at a time until you have reached the number you are working on.
Repeat this process for all of the numbers you are working on.
This activity is a foundational activity for adding, however if you use phrases like “keep counting until we get to 9” or “count 9 objects” it feels more like a counting activity and is less intimidating.
