This activity is one of many components necessary for a quality early literacy and math curriculum.
There are so many ways to use this activity! Cut out the corresponding number cards and have your child match them on the number mat. Give your child stickers, manipulatives, stampers or dotters, then say a number and they can find the number and use the above mentioned items to represent that number.
The Book Chart included is a great motivational tool for your child. Start each week by putting a circle on the chart to give them a goal to reach that week. Every time your child reads a literacy story, plays a game or completes an activity sheet they can put a sticker on the chart. You can give your child incentives if they meet their weekly goal.
