Don’t know what to do with your used diffusers or medicine bottles? You can turn it into a counting game. Alternatively you can paint toilet paper and use coffee stirrers
Tip: Count slowly as you put each stick into the bottle to model the counting in order to teach the math skill of one-to-one correspondence. For a child who is learning how to count, it is perfectly normal for him to rattle off 1-10 from rote memorization when it’s only 5 sticks! Keep modeling the counting and be encouraging
Early childhood Devt:
Numbers can be a very abstract concept for the child. This hands-on activity helps concretise your child’s understanding. The child develops the skill of one-to-one correspondence by learning to assign one number to one object. This skill precedes the understanding of the quantity that each number represents. It also helps the child to make visual discrimination of more and less.
