In rote counting, children recite numerals names in order; in rational counting, they attach numeral name to a number of things. Later, they learn that each number symbol represents an amount, gradually putting recognition of numerals together with counting.
Sample activities: singing counting songs, listening to counting books; setting the table, keeping score, playing board games. Sample activities: manipulating numerals, placing in order, playing Number Bingo, card games, matching numerals, making sets.
