(Goblin is 43 months)
Goblin can count but he doesn't know his number symbols. He is also not particularly interesting in learning them. I know a lot of children do know them by now but I don't think he will be damaged by getting there later than some. But I am trying to ensure that he is exposed to them regularly through play.
He did a great job with the low numbers, but by the time he reached the bigger ones he realised he could just leave a pile of marbles and get the little people to take as many as they needed. I tried insisting that the delivery driver needed to take back the extra ones, but he wasn't falling for it. Bt it wasn't a total bust because we still got to talk about the numbers.

I love this activity. I love how much thought you put into tailoring activities especially for Goblin too.ReplyDelete
Love this! And I agree - he won't be damaged at all just because he's not the first to know his numbers.ReplyDelete
Really awesome math activity!ReplyDelete
Love this fun learning activity! Very clever delivery :). The larger numbers are sometimes daunting for my kids too. I'll be featuring this as part of my useful math games roundup. xo PaulineReplyDelete
