TIPS FROM TEACHERS:
Introducing counting principals at any early age is fantastic exposure. One to One correspondence is a vital counting principal learnt in Early Childhood classrooms. Teach your child to touch one object at a time whilst counting out loud. The concept of one object holding one value is tricky! Often kids will count out loud faster then their fingers point, ending in an incorrect count. Use the wooden numbers with concrete materials for counting.
For older kids, pop the numbers into a touch and feel bag. Without showing your child, choose a number and describe it whilst holding it from inside the bag. For example, ‘The number I have goes down half way, then has a big belly and on top, a hat.’ Ask your child to guess what the number could be then alternate roles.
