Prep for the Pint-Sized Rigors of Kindergarten
7. Help Him Learn Basic Math Skills
Hopscotch and connect-the-dot coloring pages are fun ways to teach your child to recognize numbers. And you can help him associate spoken numbers with real objects with this fun game:
- Label 11 plastic cups from 0-10
- Give your child 55 small objects (such as cotton balls, pennies, or beans)
- Ask your child to read the number on each cup and put in the matching amount of objects. Remind her to count out loud!
