Instructions:

1. Invite the children to sit on the floor in
the center of the room. Have them sit
in a circle formation with their backs
to the center of the circle.
2. Make the room as dark as possible so
that children are still comfortable.
3. Tell them you will shine the flashlight
on a “shape” in the room. When you
point the light to the shape, the
children should name the shape.
4. Repeat the activity several times.
5. Then shine the light on numbers instead of shapes and continue the activity.
