Use the flik-flaks as a quick way to practise counting in 2s.
Show children the flik-flak and ask:
How many dogs can you see? How many eyes can you see? How many ears can you see? How did you count them?
Fold the flik-flak:
How many eyes can you see now? How did you count them? Did you count in 2s? Did you say “3 lots of 2”?
If you can see 2 eyes, how many eyes are hidden? How do you know? Explain your thinking.
