Sock Counting

Simple counting can be fun! All you need is a sock and some counters that are big and easy to feel. We used glass stones.

I told Caleb to close his eyes while I put some stones into the sock. Then, I asked him to feel how many stones were inside the sock.

Feel counting. Exploring his sense of touch.

CALEB: There’s only two!

He checked the sock to see if there were really two stones inside. He was so happy to find out that he was right.

CALEB: Let’s do it again!

I had no problem with that, whatever gets him to practice counting. 🙂
