Counting to 20

Watch the video about counting objects to 20.

 

When you have a lot of objects to count, it helps if you move them into a line as you count so that you count accurately and don't count objects twice.

 

Choose a counting challenge to do each day:

  • Count your toys when you put them away. How many of each toy have you got?
  • Count how many pieces of fruit in your fruit bowl. How many of each type of fruit have you got? What happens if you eat one?
  • Count the dots on dominoes or dice. What happens when you put 2 together?
  • Look at some playing cards. What number is represented on each? What happens if you have more than one card?
  • Ask a grown up to stand behind a door and you stand the other side. Ask the grown up to drop marbles into a tin without saying anything and you count how many marbles have been dropped. Count the marbles to check your answer.
  • Count the number of cars driving past your house. Keep a tally chart to know how many you have counted.
  • If you go for a walk, count how many ducks you can see on the pond, or birds, cars etc.
  • Line a group of objects up. Count them carefully, starting a the beginning of the line. What happens if you start counting in the middle of the line?-you still have to count them all.
  • Arrange your objects to match dice or domino patterns. What happens when you have more than 6 objects?
