Learning to count - kindergarten counting activities

Some Ideas:

  • Place numbers out into a number line from 0 to 10. Point at each number and count them out loud.
  • Point and count out loud each picture on the Counting Mats and find that number on the number line.
  • Talk about each number and different characteristics of the shape of the number. For example I would say the number 8 looks like 2 circles pushed together a bit like 2 donuts.
  • Talk about small and large numbers, such as number 3 has less pictures than number 7 because it is a smaller number.

    I made up something similar to this years ago – I did it with tractors cars trains bicycles wheelbarrows aeroplanes …to this day we still use it for counting and BOYS seem to really connect with it …

    Thanks for sharing yours! –
