Need a simple activity to count to ten?
This hungry caterpillar game is a great way to reinforce counting, and gain a better understanding that a group of objects are represented by a number name.
Sounds simple, right?
Not really. The truth is that many times we rush preschoolers right on through rather than taking the time to understand quantity.
We assume just because they can count to ten, they also understand what ten really means. But they don’t always truly understand. And without a solid foundation in how a group of ten is made, taken apart, and built back up again, we are doing a disservice for our children by not taking the time to do this.
