I started this Table Time by asking all of the kids to hold up one hand. I asked them to wiggle those fingers and then to open and close their hands (Attention getter). I then held up my hand and we counted my fingers one at a time. We opened and closed or hands repeating "5!" every time, they loved this part! We then traced each one of their hands on their paper and counted the paper hand's fingers. after they finished counting the fingers I wrote a big 5 in the middle of the hand. The last step was letting them try to trace their own hand. They really did try hard! Next time I will use fat crayons:) Less mess:) I really think that this helped all of them understand the concept of numbers a little better.
