The purpose of this activity is to learn to use numbers, an important step toward learning how to add and subtract.From the Virtual Pre-K: Ready For Math toolkit
Cut out 20 playing-card sized rectangles from the empty cereal box. Make two sets of cards from 1 to 10. You can make dots to represent each number (one dot for 1, two dots for 2), and add the written numbers as your child starts recognizing numerals. You can also make cards with the written number on one side and the number of dots on the other.
Number Card Game Ideas:
Which is More?: Help your child count out 10 cards for each of you. Each player puts down one card, then together read the two numbers and decide which is more. The player with the larger number wins both cards. Continue playing until one player has all the cards.
