Counting Activities
  • Math concepts are learned at a young age. When talking to your baby identify naturally occurring shapes in their environment. “Look, the cereal is a circle,” or “Wow, that ball is a red circle.”
  • Sequencing is part of everyone’s everyday routine. Talk to your baby about the sequence of your day or specific parts of the day. “First we will put on your shoes, and then we will visit the library.” Alternatively, “After we eat lunch, we will take a nap.”
  • As adults, we naturally sort and categorize items in our everyday life (socks in one drawer, shoes in the closet.) Infants will naturally begin to learn how to sort and classify different things and make sense of their environment. “Let’s put the cars away in the bin.”
