Ask child to set the table. Placing a napkin, utensils, or other items on the table for each family member cultivates one-to-one correspondence and cardinality skills.
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.
These skills all require use of something called working memory. Your working memory is like the mental scratch pad that holds all the information you might need for a given task. If you need to remember the Pythagorean theorem or figure out the order of operations for a calculation or even just do a two-column addition problem, you will need to use your working memory.
