    5. Count out the objects in a row together and have your child select how many they need.

    6. Point to the shape and count to help build one to one correspondence.

    7. Glue the shapes down on the page.


  • For younger toddlers, you might want to focus on just one page a day/week.

  • Using the same shape for each page may also be easier.

  • Help your child paste the shapes in an order that will be easy to count later. (No overlapping). You might consider gluing the shapes similar to playing cards for faster recognition.

  • Display completed pages or bind together to make a book.

  • Add pages up to the number 20.

  • Bind into a book after displaying.


    Counting activities are very important because it helps to develop the three aspects of numbers.

    1. Counting in a sequence out loud: 1,2,3, etc.
    2. Understanding how much is 3 and by being able to show or give three items.
    3. Recognizing and writing numbers.
