How We Count

  • When we are counting by ones, we pat our legs.
  • When we count by tens we use "flashing tens". We hold up all ten fingers and flash them each time we count up. Since we have 10 fingers, we are adding 10 everytime.
  • When we count by 5's, we swim. We have 5 fingers on each hand, so each time one hand "swims" forward, we are adding 5 more.
  • When we count by 2's we whisper the odd numbers (every other number) and say the even numbers (2,4,6,8) outloud. 1,2,3,4,5,6
