Learn to count 1-9
In this fun counting game for young math learners, numbers 1-9 are displayed, with colorful dots appearing on each number. The number of dots is equal to the value of the number. For example, the number 1 will have one dot, the number 2 will have 2 dots, and so on. Math learners can touch each dot, to count the value of the number. As each number is counted, a friendly voice says the name of the number, and the count display is updated at the right of the screen.
In stages 1-3, each number is displayed on its own. For example in stage 1, the number 1 appears with one dot. After students touch the dot, the number will disappear and then number 2 appears on it’s own with two dots. And so on.
In stages 4-6, numbers 1-9 are displayed next to each other, in a variety of positional relationships such as a horizontal row, diagonal rows, or in a circle. For example in stage 5, a group of numbers will appear in diagonal rows — say 1 2 3 4 5. Students touch the dots on numbers sequentially. In other words, students will touch the dot on number 1, then 2 dots on number 2, and so on.
When each stage is complete, an exciting reward animation displays colorful flying balloons and animated gold stars to show the number of correct answers.
Each level helps to focus students on a subset of numbers:
A.1 Learn to count 1-3
A.2 Learn to count 4-6
A.3 Learn to count 7-9
A.4 Count in a line 1-9
A.5 Count diagonal 1-9
A.6 Count in a circle 1-9
Learning standards covered in this quiz:
PK.1.1 Count forward - up to 20 (K-D.12)
PK.1.2 Names of numbers - up to 10 (K-C.30)
PK.1.3 Count dots - up to 3 (P-A.5)

NOTE TO SELF:
Young math learners are introduced to numbers 1-9, but older math learners can adapt this counting method to easily add larger numbers of the same place value. (Hey, that sounds like another idea for a great math game! Watch for it!)
