Hand Counters

This year in my classes I have started using hand counters. I purchased a few of them on Amazon and they were about $2 each. I use them during storytelling to get students to count the number of times I say a certain structure. Every since I have started using them, the kids all want to be the “counters” because they love using them. The great part is that I can tell very easily if they aren’t counting properly. It is easy to see if they have pressed the button and it also makes a clicking sound when they press it.

  1. Nice! I have not always been successful at training my kids to become good counters… but a gadget makes all the difference. Thank you for sharing.

    • I know, I always had the same problem. Now I do have some kids that just want to keep clicking non-stop and not actually count though. Haha.
