Ideas for home
- Count out a set of ten small objects. Ask your child to create a set with more than five. Then ask your child to describe how much more than five the set is. Then ask your child to create sets that are fewer than five.
- Talk about quantities with your child. E.g. after you put six cans in the shopping cart, ask your child if there are more or less than ten cans, and to explain their thinking.
- Work with your child to create a counting book with drawings, stickers, and/or pictures cut from magazines. Show each number in different ways. Your child could draw three apples on one page and show three dots in a diagonal row on another page.
- Notice small groups of objects (five or less) when you are out with your child. Ask, “How many leaves do you see?” or “How many cans are in the shopping cart?” Ask your child how they know. Did they just know or did they count the objects one by one?
- Ask what comes after a number such as seven. Children may have to start at one and count up to the number. If needed, prompt them by offering a shorter running start. E.g. ask, “What number comes after seven? Five, six, seven …”
