These activities focus on saying one number word for each object. Rhythmic and playful games such as "Simon Says" lay the ground work, and others such as "Counting Wand" demonstrate and discuss the concept that we must have one and only one number word for each object. Because there are really two correspondence – between saying the counting words and pointing, and between pointing and the objects – multiple experiences over a considerable time are often needed.
