I love How Many Snails? by Paul Giganti. It is a fabulous counting book that promotes critical thinking skills in young children. Every page has so many objects to count and the questions promote higher level thinking skills. More importantly, each page allows the students to ask their own questions. This past school year I started making wordless How Many ppts. This is one of the children's favorites. I don't have a smart board in my classroom, but I do have an infocus projector. I divided the class into small groups and each group had to produce three questions about the page shown. (We do this activity after repeated readings of How Many Snails?)
