Using the flik-flak to count in 2s

Use the flik-flaks as a quick way to practise counting in 2s.

 

Show children the flik-flak and ask:

Fold the flik-flak:

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Ask:

How many eyes can you see now? How did you count them? Did you count in 2s? Did you say “3 lots of 2”?

 

Challenge

If you can see 2 eyes, how many eyes are hidden?  How do you know?  Explain your thinking.
