It’s valuable for parents to assimilate the paths or layers of thinking that young children go through to master these concepts. For instance, counting seems like a simple activity, but it goes beyond number recognition. To become a proficient counter, a child needs to understand one-to-one correspondence (one number for one object) and the principle of cardinality (last number in a series is the total number in that set). For example, if you have three and add two, the total is five without having to start back at one. Cardinality is crucial in moving forward to addition.
Number pizzas. Tell child, “I’m a chef and I’m making pizza.” Set red plastic chips on a paper plate and ask “How many pepperonis do I have?” Next, “Can you make your pizza have the same number, or matching pepperonis, as mine?” This game teaches concepts of similarities and differences – the same number can be organized in a different way.
Invite child to count collections of things such as erasers, blocks, or small toy animals, then show the counts on paper. Draw the objects or a circle representing each item and place the objects on the respective circle to show an accurate count.
