Counting, graphing, reading numbers in different ways

“It’s a game,” 5-year-old Ahmad explains. “I roll these dice. And then I count 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8 and if I get 8 I will use the purple. I always get 8. It’s my lucky number! If I get the number 1, I would color in orange here.”

You didn’t get a single 1. Why is that?
“Because with two dice, you can’t get 1.”

Oh, I see the numbers are all jumbled! Do you know them all?
“Yes,” says Thea, reading them from left to right: “7, 2, 1, 9, 6, 3, 5, 8, 4.”
“I also know all my numbers,” Rafel says. “Yesterday, I counted to 500!”

Really? In one go?
“Yes. It took me from CIS to go home.”

“They’re practicing counting, reading numbers in different ways and graphing information,” Kindergarten Teacher Jessica points out. “We’ll use the graphs to talk about how we can share information. They’re practicing the skill of graphing and learning that you can organize and sort information on a graph.”
