*Try estimating! A very important skill in developing number sense! Take a handful of beans, pasta, whatever you have on hand and everyone makes a guess as to how many are in the pile. Then count. Then increase or decrease the amount and make new guesses. Try it 4 times and see everyone's estimating skills become more accurate! Fun for parents too!
