Have fun! We hope you enjoy these activities with your child.
Ideas for Home
- Find opportunities to count at home! Have your child count the plates on the table for a meal, the number of toys on their bed, or the number of people in the car or on the bus.
- When counting objects, try pushing each object to one side, or pointing to each object as it is counted, to help avoid recounting objects or skipping an object.
- After your child counts a group of objects, ask "How many?" An important concept for Kindergarten students is learning that the last number spoken names the total of the set.
- Encourage your child to sort their toys and other household objects. Hold up an object and ask "Which group does this belong to? How do you know?" Listen to your child explain their sorting rule (e.g. toys with wheels and toys with no wheels).
- Once your child has sorted items into groups, ask questions such as "Whicvh group has the most?" and "Which group has the least?"
- Ask your child to make groups to match your own. Say "I have four plates. Can you make a group of cups with the same amount?"
- Work with your child to think of several questions that can be answered with yes or no. Then ask family members and friends to ansswer and record the number of yes and nmo answers.
