If you’ve been following The Measured Mom since the beginning, you know I have a weakness for count and clip cards. They’re simple to make, fun to do, and teach a few important skills in one activity. Plus, they’re so easy to customize for the seasons! In honor of October, I’ve created another preschool counting printable: Monster Count & Clip Cards. But rest assured, there’s nothing scary about these adorable little creatures!
My Three really enjoys these. We stick with just numbers 1-10. He tends to point all over the place when counting. Today we worked at counting all the monsters in a row and then moving to the next row. This was a little challenging because every time I tried to show him, my independent little guy (read: stubborn!) insisted, “No, I want to do it myself!”
We’ll get there.
He’s showing a lot of improvement at counting cards. I love that he’s practicing quite a few important skills:
- one-to-one correspondence
- number recognition
- fine motor (pinching that clothespin!)
Even though my Three can’t count groups past ten yet, I like to make my cards go up to 20 for the benefit of older preschoolers. My Five practiced counting the larger sets.
