Mrs. Stefanie's Preschoolers recently participated in a lesson called "How Many". "How Many" is a small group lesson from the **Connect 4 Learning Curriculum**. For this lesson, the children had to take turns rolling a numeral dice and determine what number was on the dice. The children then had to put the same number of cubes onto a plate as the number they rolled.

The students practiced stating a number and producing a specific number of objects. The students were also able to think, pair and share, while also cooperating and attending to another's ideas.

**IELS (Iowa Early Learning Standards) Addressed in this Lesson:**

- 7.1.PS.1 recognizes small quantities (1 to 5) without counting them (subitizing).
- 7.1.PS.6 identifies numerals to 10 by name.
