In this activity, your child will play a game to practice identifying numbers from 0-10. Children who have mastered this skill will practice ordering numbers from 0 to 10. This kind of game helps children match the number word they hear with the written number, and helps them attend to each number individually, which can be more challenging than just rote counting aloud.
Say to the child: “Let’s play a game. I am going to say a number and I want you to jump to the number on floor. Let’s practice. ‘7’—we both will jump to number 7” (both parent and child should jump to the paper with number 7).
Continue the game by calling out other numbers in random order and having your child jump on that number. If the numbers are placed close to each other, the child may be able to leap from one to the other. If you spread them out more, the child may jump or hop all the way to the number you say. Either arrangement is fine.
