Our first week of Dr. Suess revolved around the book Ten Apples Up on Top.
This book presented a host of opportunities for us to practice our counting skills! For this activity, we used blocks (of which apple stickers were attached), to practice our counting!
Using our hands and our thinking minds, we stacked our blocks until we reached ten! Creating a foundation for complex mathematical thinking is initiated in early childhood.
Stacking objects helps your preschooler begin to acknowledge quantities, cause and effect, and measurement. This awareness lays the framework for more complicated concepts later on.
