Counting Method / June 6, 2018 / Norah Myles
There are many kindergarten games created and while not all of them are educational, when you spend the time looking for these games, there are websites dedicated to offering these games for free to encourage children to learn. These games are created by professionals in the education and entertainment field so that they keep the child entertained but keep the learning value at a high level. There are many types of games that help with each topic that a child in kindergarten learns while in school and outside of school. Things like spelling, reading, counting, addition, colors and color mixing and many other things.
Cardinality: When a child is counting a collection, the last item in the collection is the amount of the collection. For instance, if a child counts 1,2,3,4,5,6, 7 marbles, knowing that the last number represents the number of marbles in the collection is cardinality. When a child is prompted to recount the marbles how many marbles there are, the child doesn't yet have cardinality. To support this concept, children need to be encouraged to count sets of objects and then probed for how many are in the set. The child needs to remember the last number represents the quantity of the set. Cardinality and quantity are related in counting concepts.
