Counting Umbrellas

Picture 274

Found these umbrellas at the supermarket and decided to use them as counters. Here’s a picture of Caleb putting them into plastic cups labelled with numbers. This activity is more challenging than the counting cards activity

Goofing around and having some fun.

CALEB: It’s rainy and I use the little umbrella. It’s so tiny!

Caleb is pretending to hold an imaginary umbrella since we closed up all the umbrellas.
He counted the umbrellas closed this time.

Counting Cards

Picture 180

Our counting activity for today. Used counting cards.
Caleb puts the little squares onto the black dots.
We are working overtime on his math skills.
My mistake! I focused too much on learning how to read that I forgot that he needs to understand numbers not just rote count.
