Counting Method / June 6, 2018 / Norah Myles
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.
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.
