The child will create sets of six to ten pennies.
In this activity, the child will first watch a video about a chef who counts multiple sets of 6 as he makes hamburgers for customers. Then they will count sets of 6 to 10 pennies. Note: If a child makes an error on the scenes without a board, the child will automatically advance to the independent practice.

At the end of the activity, the child will be asked to make a set of 6 items.
Have the child show you the set they made. Have them demonstrate one-to-one correspondence as they count the items in the set. Prompt the child to demonstrate that they understand the last number they counted indicates how many are in the set (cardinality). Ask, “How many did you count?”
