Recognising Tens and Ones
Clap and Flip Game
by Vishakha Deshpande
The teacher will explain to the children that she will clap her hands and flip her fingers for a particular number. The flips are for tens and claps are for ones. They will count the number of flips and claps and guess which number it is.
Ex. If it is 1 flip and 4 claps, the number is 14.
Ex. If it is 2 flips and 3 claps, the number is 23. Then once this is done, she will do it the reverse way. She will tell the number and the children will flip and clap.
