  • Demonstrate how to remove the discs from the dowels. 
  • Demonstrate stacking the discs on the dowels. 
  • Remove the discs from the dowels and demonstrate organizing the discs by color on the floor. 
  • Consider demonstrating how to stack matching discs onto the same dowel. 
  • Use one-to-one counting when counting the disks.

Children's play should be monitored at all times.
