Bean Bag Count
I use a bean bag for my students to throw and catch as they count. It’s also useful when counting by 2’s, 5’s and 10’s. The beanbags keep the students’ interest and make learning fun. This is also good for problem solving because if they drop the bag, they have to start over. Pretty soon they figure out that they should toss it to the person closest to them. It’s fun to see them figure out these everyday problems on their own.
