Counting Fingers

posted Sep 6, 2018, 12:03 PM by Patrick Johnson
The pictures below were scattered around the classroom today. Students were challenged to find out how many fingers (including thumbs) were in each picture. Students were encouraged to compare totals and discuss strategies on how they counted the fingers.
Some counting strategies students used:
  • count by 5s
  • count by 10s
  • count half then double
  • count the number of hands then multiply by 5
  • count all of the fingers then add the number of thumbs afterwards
