Today’s Number: 8 Mittens

What is today’s number? How many mittens do you see?

Can you count up to 8? How many pairs of mittens (sets of 2) do you see?

Look around your home. Can you find or make sets of 8?

Here are some ideas:

  • Line up 8 toys or objects. Can you line them up in sets of 2? How many sets of 2 are in a group of 8?
  • Can you write one number for each item in your set?
