Ideas for home
- Write the numerals 1 to 10 on small pieces of paper. Ask your child to match the correct numeral to small collections they have counted, such as toy cars, buttons, spoons, or pebbles.
- Follow up by asking your child to compare two of the collections and tell you which has more and which has less. Be sure to ask how they know.
- Gather several shoes from your house and ask your child to order them by size. Be sure to ask them to describe the shoes using language such as: “This shoe is little, this shoe is littler, and this shoe is the littlest.”
- Notice everyday experiences with weight to expand your child's language. E.g. talk about moving heavy objects such as chairs or lighter objects such as pillows.
- Collect a range of containers and allow your child to compare the amount they can hold. Use opportunities such as bath time or when cooking to talk about filling containers and comparing the amount they can hold. Encourage your child to talk about what they observe and use language such as: “The blue bucket has more sand than the red bucket, but the yellow bucket has the most sand.”
