After repeating this instruct for awhile, I would ask them to put them into two groups; two vs. four legs. I would then ask each child individually to show the class the baby and to tell us if it had two or four legs. After all the children were asked, I would then ask each child to bring the babies to the front and place them in the appropriate basket. After the children accomplished this task, I would ask the children to count with me, to see how many babies are in each basket. I would then write the results on the board and have the children copy the number on a piece of paper for practice.
