The Counting Goose
This is a variation on Duck Duck Goose that I have found to be excellent for young kids!
The kids sit in the circle as normal. Then, I give them a number between 1-20. They have to count off as they go around the circle. (ie. If the number is 7, they count. 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7). When they get to number 7 they are the goose. I change the number each time.
Also, I have one student that never likes to play games with others. I let her give the numbers for the kids. She loves it and the other students like it as well.
Hope this works well for you. If you have any comments or suggestions please send them to: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thanks and happy counting!
