We have been working on counting for some time now and I have started introducing the numbers in addition to counting.
I saw this on one of my blogs and knew it would be perfect! It fits in our theme and it is just basic enough for Jacob. 2 Teaching Mommies has this number book as a free printable! Check out 2 Teaching Mommies it is a great resource!!
I printed and cut out the book. I told Jake that we were going to make our own book today. He loved that idea which excited me because I loved making books when I was young and knowing that he enjoys it as well opens up quite a few activities for us to do!
I had him count and color the snowflakes. I used my finger to trace the number and a say it. Then I had him try to trace it with the crayon. As you can see, he didn't do too great at first but by number 10 he did a perfect job!!
Jake is doing a good job counting but I have to point or have him point at the items he is counting to get him to count correctly. His go to is 2, 4, 9, 10! He can count but takes the lazy out and just quickly says, "2, 4, 9, 10!" When I tell him to slow down and count correctly he can do it! Pointing certainly helps!!
