Counting Rings -- If I did this, I would do the first 5 beads the same color, and the second set of 5 the same color to help the child see the groupings, so 5 pink and 1 blue is easy to see as 6 without counting the individual beads, etc. Math Center, Numbers Sen, Counted Rings, Math Ideas, Math Facts, Children, Numbers Bond, Art Child, Pipes Cleaners

IDEA FOR PRACTICE COUNTING PROJECT...assign a number for each child and have them choose and glue corresponding number of objects. Have them write 2-3 numbers to choose answers from. Exchange with a friend and practice counting!
It is important that kids realize we read for lots of reasons - and one of those reasons is to learn something new! Use picture books to introduce your little ones to concepts such as counting. It brings together the joy of reading with the joy of learning. Don't worry if they don't "get it" the first time through! Just have fun learning together.
