Simple Chalk Preschool Counting Activity

First, I wrote numbers 1-10 on the bricks. Saying the names of the numbers while writing them so that the kids can hear and see the numbers and their names. Having them count with me, pointing at the written numbers too. counting chalk numbers
Then each child got a turn to choose a number.

They had to find the chosen number, then jump up and down for the number of counts according to the number, while I made the lines counting up till we reach the number.

Example:  For instance, number two- jump twice (while counting and drawing two lines next to the number 2 on the brick).

For the next round, they chose a number again, but this time had to spin around the correct amount of times according to the chosen number. After each round we changed up the instruction: jumping, spinning, walking backwards, stand on one leg etc.
