## Start/Stop Counting II

### Setup

Students should be seated on chairs at their tables or desks. The teacher will give a counting sequence (for example, 20-120) to the students.

### Actions

Begin with the teacher walking around the room while counting aloud from a number between 1 and 20. The teacher continues to count until he/she chooses a student by patting them on the shoulder. The student and teacher switch roles, the teacher sits in the student’s chair while the student resumes the count and walks around the room. At the teacher’s signal (clap, snap, chime etc.) the student selects the nearest student and switches places with another child who continues the count. Repeat this until each child has had a turn counting. If a child reaches 120 before each child has been given a chance to count, begin the sequence over again or if the children are ready reverse the sequence.
