Strong counting skills will help your preschoolers progress as mathematical concepts become more complex.
There are several ways to practice counting. To integrate this task into our theme, we created ghosts out of bananas and raisins.
We discussed how many eyes the ghost should have and then counted the number on our fingers.
We then acknowledged that we all have only one nose, and that more raisins would be required to create a mouth.
Mastering number facts, such as sequencing and its application to real world experience, are necessary for the continual development of pre-math skills.
