Count On is a fun and educational game designed to help children practice and improve their ability to count on from any given number up to ten. To play this game, all you need is a single dice with numbers ranging from 0 to 9. This simple yet effective game not only reinforces basic counting skills but also encourages the use of fingers to keep track of counting, which is a practical way to visualise and understand number sequences.

The rules of the game are straightforward: players take turns to roll the dice and then count out loud from the number shown on the dice up to ten. For example, if a player rolls a 6, they would count "7, 8, 9, 10" and score 4 points for the four numbers counted. Players use their fingers to help keep track of the numbers they count, aiding in their cognitive development and understanding of number progression. The game is competitive, with each player having five turns to accumulate the highest score possible. The player with the highest score after these turns is declared the winner. During gameplay, it's beneficial to discuss how counting on fingers can be a helpful tool and to emphasise the importance of saying the next number as counting begins. This activity also provides an opportunity to observe and understand the inverse relationship between the dice number thrown and the number of counts needed to reach ten.
