Number, Counting & Cardinality

## Visit Magician’s Tricks activityMagician’s Tricks

Abracadabra! In this activity, children take turns using their “magic trick” (counting skills) to figure out what number is on a facedown counting card.

## Visit Counting from any number activityCounting from any number

Place number cards face down in numerical order. One child points to any card and the other child—the magician—uses their magic counting skills to figure out what number it is without turning the cards over. Then, flip the card over so children can see if they are correct. Leave the card facing up so the next child counts on to find the next number. For example, if a 3 is turned over and the next facedown card that a student points to is a 4, the student can count on from 3 instead of starting at 1.
