Jumping Numbers

I can’t take credit for this activity at all since it came from my PAT (Parents as Teachers educator) but I thought I would share because I thought it was so darn cute and G-man loved it. Plus, it would be very easy to do yourself if you wanted to.
The objective is to recognize the numbers 1-6. This is a new concept to Garrett, but surprisingly, he is very into counting lately, wanting to count everything.  It was perfect timing. She brought a large foam die and Garrett first had to roll it and count the dots to determine the number.

Then he had to jump that number inside of the circle (made out of a heavy yarn type).

We ended the hour with a book about…counting of course! Thanks for a great activity Stacy.
