Fun and Interactive Counting Game for Kids

Are you looking for a fun and engaging way to help your students practise counting? Look no further! Our Counting to 20  “I Have, Who Has?” game has been designed to make learning numbers 1-20 exciting and interactive. Perfect for classrooms, this game encourages collaborative learning and builds confidence in counting skills.

How to Play

  1. Game Cards: Each student receives a card with a number and a prompt.
    • Example: “I have 5. Who has 7?”
  2. Sequence Play: The student with the card saying “I have 7” responds and reads their card.
    • Example: “I have 7. Who has 2?”
  3. Continuous Play: This pattern continues until all numbers up to 20 have been called out and the sequence is complete.

Each card in this card game doesn’t simply have a numeral, it has numbers shown in various ways such as fingers, objects, ten frames and tally marks.

Counting to 20 and Beyond

Helping kids learn to count to 20 and beyond can be both engaging and effective through a combination of interactive and hands-on methods. Start by using visual aids like number charts and flashcards to introduce and reinforce number recognition. Incorporating counting into daily activities, such as counting toys, steps, or snacks, helps make learning practical and fun. Printable activities like this I have Who Has game in a variety of different styles is also beneficial. Regular practice, positive reinforcement, and integrating counting into various playful contexts help solidify their understanding and keep them motivated.
