Re: No recess for first grade???

If all else fails, I'd try to incorporate a "snack" into the instruction. I used to do this with my preschoolers all the time. e.g., laminated place mats with goldfish bowls drawn on them - put the correct number of goldfish crackers in the bowls (you could do this orally, since written numbers are pretty similar across languages); sort by color (match "red" grapes or bell pepper slices to the word "red"; green ones to the word "green"); sort by shape (cheese cubes or slices, bread, crackers, etc. cut into shapes with cookie cutters).
