Here's WHY this game is so valuable.
There is a difference between counting and understanding what the numbers stand for.
COUNTING is one of the first concepts to master. You will notice that your preschooler can count fairly early on and that counting has to do with memorization.
BUT WHAT'S REALLY GOING ON IN THIS PICTURE IS QUANTITY.
QUANTITY is the concept of understanding how many.
It may also include concepts such as more than, bigger than, less than, and same as.
By Kindergarten, children will be asked to understand that each successive number name refers to a quantity that is one larger.
This visual allows your preschooler to touch the objects as they count and add one more.
Not only will you get a new Breakfast Invitation here, but you will also better understand how to handle when things go a new direction.
