Heads In, Hearts In: Eggs-cellent Counting


May 25, 2021 - Author:

What you need to know:

Number recognition is knowing and being able to identify and name numbers (1, 2, 3, 4 and so on.). One-to-one correspondence is matching each object when counting with only one number name (when counting 3 squares, counting “1, 2, 3” instead of “1, 2, 3, 4, 5”). Cardinality is knowing how many items are in a set when counting and understanding that the last number you say is how much or how many are in the whole group (“1 fish, 2 fish, 3 fish, 4 fish. There are four fish total!”).

What you will do and learn:

In this activity, you will count small items and place them in the space on an egg carton with the matching written number.
