Counting Activities
  • Toddlers love to count. Use tangible objects such as their fingers, toes, snacks or toys to make it more fun and relatable.
  • Have fun while you count. Count how many times you can count jumping to the mailbox. Count how many stairs or doors you have in your house. This is a great way for your child to recognize numbers in everyday life.
  • Talk about the timeline of your day. This promotes the concept of sequencing. "First, first we will eat breakfast, then we will clean up, next we will take a bath and then play with the blocks." This promotes oral language as well as sequencing with ordinal numbers.
