My Nathan boy has been really working on counting lately. He picked up on numbers and number order super easy. But, when it came to actually slowing down to count items, he just lacked patience. Say there was 5 apples in front of him, he would would start counting 1 apple, 2 apple and then say 3, 4, 5, 6, 7 all in one breath. He just doesn’t slow down long enough to actually count them one at a time, all the way through the items.
We have really had a lot of fun practicing using our Lauri Numbers. They are basically foam counting puzzles. We separate the pieces and set the numbers out. Then Nathan puts the pieces back and takes a hammer toy (from another one of our toys) and hammers them back in counting them as we go.
Then I have Nathan go count the pieces again and then ask him what number we need to find. Then I point out the number on the Lauri Number Puzzle and then we go over and find the number piece and put the piece back in. This way Nathan is working on visually recognizing the numbers as well.
Because, this day we had both the Lauri Numbers and Monster Counting Cards I then asked him to find the matching numbers.
These are for personal use in your home or classroom.
