Halloween Counting Activity Worksheet
Teaching a child to count may seem like a relatively easy task. However, it might also be frustrating and complex at times. Counting is the first math concept taught in school.
The ability to count and work with numbers is a basic math skill for children when beginning school. By working with your child on some fun and engaging activities, you can help him/her gain important skills in this area.
Counting to 20
Counting from 1 to 20 requires rote memorization. If your child is not yet able to count from 1 to 20, you can help him gain this ability simply by counting with him at every opportunity.
To engage your child, count aloud as you or your child completes certain activities. For example, see who can put away more toys in 10 or 20 seconds, counting aloud together as you clean. Or, count how many steps it takes you to get from one room to another room or from your front door to the car, counting aloud with each step. The more your child hears the numbers being recited in the correct order, the more quickly he will learn the order for himself.
