Month 1 · Activity 7 · Numbers
- Find the numeral 1 by looking for page numbers in assorted books, magazines, etc. and have a child point to the numeral 1
- Ask the child to hold up one finger, one arm, one leg
- Have child cover up one eye and point to one toe
Gather 10 objects (pennies, raisins, etc.) and let the child place 1 object on a table. Next, let them select another object and place next to the first object and ask how many objects - 2.
Review the process by stating that 1 plus 1 equals 2 OR stating that when you have 1 object and add 1 more object - you now have 2 objects.
Now add one more object and state 2 plus 1 equals 3. Always let the child count the number of objects.
Continue to add 1 object at a time until all 10 are placed on the table.
