This game is to practice counting down from a given number.
- Objects to count (buttons, toothpicks, rocks, pasta, etc.)
- Say: I have 9 macaroni pieces in all. How many are in the container?
- Show how to count down: Start at 9 with fist closed, then count down to how many you can see (6).
There are 3 fingers up, so there are 3 macaroni in the container.
