• Now, have students continue to fill the circles with cheerios and write the amount per circle below.
• Walk around the room to make sure students are completing the activity correctly.
• If students are having difficult writing the numbers, write them in highlighter or yellow crayon so students can trace them.
• Enrichment:Students succeeding in this activity should be given additional circles to fill with cheerios or more cheerios to practise counting 1-20.
