Counting Activities
  • Numbers are used in a variety of ways; such as counting and labeling. Count objects around your house such as cars, toys, and cereal.
  • Take a walk around your neighborhood. Talk to your child about your address, neighborhood, street, house, business and signs as you drive or walk around your neighborhood/town.
  • Practice math skills during mealtime! Ask your child to help set the table, give every family member a fork, plate, and napkin. Encourage your child to count the items individually, together and in total. Make mealtime fun while encouraging learning.
  • Cook, bake and play in the kitchen. Cooking and baking are a great way for families to practice numbers, letters, counting, measuring and even fractions. Bake something and have your child help add, count, measure, and mix the ingredients. Baking is a fun math and science experiment.
