Listen to Add

 If you've been helping your students warm up for math with a listen-to-count ignition activity, here is an idea for extending into addition!

  • have 2 cups or containers
  • tell students to listen and count (silently in their mind)
  • drop some counters into one
  • drop some craft sticks into the other
  • encourage students to count on from one to the other - e.g. 1, 2, 3 ...... 4, 5
