Sit in a circle. Raise ten fingers. Put fingers down one at a time as you chant:                Use these attribute pieces:
ten little, nine little, eight little fingers, Seven little, six little, five little fingers,   Large red and blue circle
Four little, three little, two little fingers, one little finger all alone.                     Large red and blue square
Large red and blue triangle
Ask children to identify each of the 6 pieces by naming its attributes. (color,
shape, looks like…)
Mix up the pieces. Hide one piece as children close their eyes. What is
missing? Children can take turns hiding and guessing.
