Skill Focus: Active Viewing, Math, Vocabulary

Invite children to play the PEEP and the Big Wide World game “Flower Power.” Chirp and Quack have a pile of cherry blossoms. The two friends need help sharing the flowers so each has the same number of flowers. Guide children to understand that they are to drag the flowers to put them into two groups until both Chirp and Quack have the same number of flowers and are happy. Model how to play. Ask questions such as, How many flowers should I put here? Who has the most flowers now?

When players can equally share the flowers between two characters, include Peep and then share the flowers three ways.

Adaptation: If younger children want to play, play with them one-on-one or allow older children to help them count and divide the flowers.
