Counting Method / June 6, 2018 / Norah Myles
Allow The Kid To Shop Around. Inside the home, build up a vegetable market with several potatoes, tomatoes and onions. Give them money and ask them to bring two potatoes, three tomatoes and five onions. Correct them, if they bring wrong items. If the child is around 7 years or more, take along to the vegetable market and ask the child to pay for the vegetables. This makes the child understand the value of money and the correct way of handling it.
Teachers and parents like to use board games to teach skills that range from fair play to counting. When it comes to improving early number skills, a new report by Boston College and Carnegie Mellon University researchers finds that how children count is what really counts. Earlier studies have pointed to the benefits to young children of playing games that require counting. The new study suggests the simple act of playing a number game may not yield the benefits earlier studies have detailed. What matters is how children count while they play.
