I seriously don’t know how he does it. It’s a super-human strength. Really, how is it possible for such tiny hands to keep a grip on not one, but at least three cars all day long? We’re talking breakfast, lunch, dinner, bedtime, and naps, too. My little guy simply adores his race cars.
A few days ago, I put my teacher cap on again trying to think of a way to support number recognition and one-to-one correspondence for my son. I looked in my junk drawer. Hmmm. Painter’s tape left over from the move to the new house. Then I peeked in my son’s toy box. Cars. Oodles of Hot Wheels cars… Got it!
Armed with my ridiculously simple supplies and a permanent marker, I set up a simple counting and graphing activity for my all-boy, car-loving kid.
This activity is designed to help your child:
- Recognize and identify numerals
- Understand one-to-one correspondence
- Understand greater/ lesser than number value concepts
