Grab and Count

Grab and Count is one of the math games that we play in Math Workshop. Students grab one handful (although a variation of this game is to grab two handfuls so that students have to count to a higher number) of math tiles or cubes. Then students have to count each one and record how many tiles or cubes they grabbed. This game helps students practice counting, one-to-one correspondence, recording data, writing numbers,and drawing objects to represent numbers. Bonus: They love playing it! (Another variation is to grab and count and then play a second time and decide whether you grabbed more or less the first time and possibly even try to find the difference between the two.)
