"The Numeral March" - Activity Tip

Hint: When placing the numerals on the floor, place them is sets of two, leaving plenty of space between each set. Tell children that when they locate a matching numeral they "freeze" in their position until you say "exchange." When they hear the word "exchange" they hand their numeral to the friend who is standing beside them.
