Count the Dots
Chances are your kindergartener loves stickers. They're fun for crafts and simple play, but did you know they can also be used for math practice? Here's a sneaky way to get your child counting: place a few stickers on a sheet of paper, then have her match them one-for-one. Teachers call this activity one-on-one correspondence, which is important for your kindergartener's understanding of counting, numbers, and basic addition. And with stickers involved, she won't mind the practice at all!
What You Need:
- 2 sets of different, non-assorted stickers (stickers in simple shapes and solid colors work best here, such as a sheet of stars, hearts, or smiley faces)
- 5-10 sheets of colorful paper
