This Fluency Activity is a part of the Lesson 1, Unit 5, Grade K. This variation of counting the Math Way maintains students' abilities to model counting sequences within 10 on fingers. Count by ones within 10 on fingers from left to right, from pinky on the left hand as 1 to pinky on the right hand as 10. Hover the fingers as if playing the piano. Drop each finger as it is counted, and leave it down. Start and end at different numbers (e.g., count from 5 to 7).
