Counting Cup

Illustrative MathematicsVaries

The paper plate is used as an organizational tool for the students to make sure they have counted each item. Counting the items back and forth on and off the plate helps them establish the habit of moving items counted to another place as a means of keeping track. The teacher can use the plates to keep track of who was able to count the quantity accurately and who was not by sorting them into two piles. Mouse Count is a great children's book that can be used to introduce this activity.
