Counting. Many of us don’t remember learning it, but this skill is something we use daily without realizing it.
Counting is the stepping stone to all other math skills, so as a parent, it is naturally on your mind to teach your child early. Early development of counting skills can be a great way to give your child a head start on their preschool class. Studies show that learning to count at a young age is a great foundation to future academic success.
Plus, the more comfortable they are with numbers, the more comfortable they are likely to be when introduced to other math skills like addition and subtraction.
Fortunately, teaching your child to count doesn’t have to be overwhelming or overly technical. Many of the best teaching items I have found are easily handmade or laying around the house already. The biggest key to success is consistency and enthusiasm!
