Counting Method / June 6, 2018 / Ximena Lucas
Sing Along Counting Rhymes. The sing along counting rhymes is the best method to teach counting to a child between three to five years of age. The kids pay more attention to funny music and songs. Therefore, the songs or games related to numbers and counting help a lot to make the teaching easier. "One, two, three, four, five once I caught a fish Alive" is a very common and attractive song that every kid loves to hear and understand. Along with funny songs, the mother needs to use the fingers and toes to count with the music. The number song along with the body action makes a good impact on the child about the number system.
Quantity or Conservation: The number also represents the group of objects regardless of size or distribution. Nine blocks spread all over the table are the same as nine blocks stacked on top of each other. Regardless of the placement of the objects or how they're counted (order irrelevance), there are still nine objects. When developing this concept with young learners, it's important to begin with pointing to or touching each object as the number is being said.
