Theme: Number recognition zero to five
Hands On: Small Foam Numbers 0 to 5; Magnets 0 to 5 with a pie tin.
Here's a couple of ideas to go along with this week's theme. I noticed a week ago that my daughter didn't seem to recognize her numbers, even though I'm pretty sure she know them. I decided to just focus on 0 to 5. When I read 5 Little Ladybugs, I asked her to pick up the corresponding foam number that went with the page. It's good for following directions and for recognizing the numbers. With the other stories I just reinforced the numbers and asked her to say the numbers with me. Finally with the magnets, I placed the numbers in front of us and asked her to give me each one (out of order). We also did do some counting with the stories but the main focus was recognition.
I'll try to post each week to help with ideas.
