Since we seemed to have mastered counting to 10 recently (yes, the same little man that absolutely refused to count only months ago), I figured it was time we moved on and added a bit of a challenge and with our bumblebee unit still in full swing, it seemed like the perfect time to start counting some bees.
Of course, we still practiced 1-10, but this time, we added 11-20 into these adorable bumblebee count and clip cards as well.
I love these little cards for a couple of reasons. The first being that they portable! Take them with you anywhere! Grab a couple of Ziploc bags and take a set with you while you’re waiting at the doctor’s office or keep a set in the car in case you and the little ones get stuck in traffic. They make fantastic busy bags!
The other thing I love about these is that they allow your child to practice multiple skills at once. Number recognition, counting, one to one correspondence, and fine motor skills all in one! How’s that for multitasking? 🙂
Included in the download you’ll find a printable card for every number from 1 to 20. If you’re using them with a younger child, just separate the cards and use 1-10 or 1-5. If your child is a bit older or already knows 1-10 well, just skip those and give 11-20 a try. All you need is the printable and a few clothespins!
