It is a counting book but with a twist. The questions within the book expand.
The questions on this page are something like:
How many dogs are there at the park?
How many dogs at the park have spots?
How many dogs with spots have their tongues sticking out?
Since we have been solving story problems about buses, we decided to expand on the idea within this book. It turned out something like this:
This led to a conversation about how we could make the counting easier. My firsties decided they needed to sit in rows.
I wanted more questions that needed two or three attributes. The great thing about this book is that we can do the activity again with a different theme: jack o'lanterns, perhaps :)
