Put up the poster. Point to each number, one at a time, and say the appropriate words. Children repeat, chorally and individually. Hold up a finger and ask the children to do the same. All together say: one. Do the same for all ten fingers and then children count out loud from 1 to 10, holding up their hands and counting on their fingers at the same time. Pin up the flashcards. Say the appropriate words. Children repeat, chorally and individually. Ask children to take out their picture cards (six, seven, eight, nine, ten, magic, new). Call out the items in random order. Children listen and hold up the corresponding picture card.
