### Let us Talk

**B.** How many animals or birds were eating the mango in the
beginning?

**C.** How many more animals or birds joined every time?

**D.** What is 1 more than 1, 1 more than 2… up to 9?

Talk about counting numbers as the animals join. Enact the story where all children play the role of different animals or birds and make their respective sounds. Talk about different birds or animals, their sounds and their habitats.

**Match the number of birds with the number of fingers.**

**Match the fingers with correct number of dots (one has already been done for you).**

### Let us Play — Mime with Fingers

Show 3 fingers to your friend. Your friend has to show 3 fingers but in a different way. Similarly, you can play for other numbers.

What are the different ways of showing 4 fingers using one hand?

### Let us Play Outside

Children can move in a circle by holding hands and singing songs. A child claps and says four. All children can make groups of four by holding hands. The left out children can count the number of children in each group. Similarly, children continue this game by saying different numbers up to 9.

Help them to know if they have enough material.

Tick $\checkmark$ more or less or equal.

Discuss with children how did they find out which items are more or less or equal. Also discuss the habit of sharing objects among the group when children are more than the items or objects. Also discuss the importance of Ekta Diwas.
