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. This helps your child count all the objects, and count each object only once.
- After your child counts a group of objects, ask "How many?" Kindergarten students are learning an important concept: that the last number they say names the quantity in the group.
- 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 (for example, toys with wheels and toys with no wheels).
- When your child has sorted items into groups, ask questions such as, "Which group has the most?" and "Which group has the least?"
- Ask your child to make groups to match your own group. Say "I have four plates. Can you make a group of cups that has the same amount?"
- Work with your child to think of several questions that can be answered with yes or no. Ask family members and friends to answer the questions, and record the number of yes answers and no answers.
