Montessori Activity: Counting with Glass Stones



Age: From 2.5 years old

Objectives: To teach counting objects in a fun way

Materials:
1. 1 counting worksheet (you can draw like I did above or I have created a printable version here)
2. 15 glass stones
3. 1 tray

Directions:
1. Demonstrate by putting one glass stone on the box in the label called "One" and two glass stones on the boxes in the label called "Two", saying, "Joshua, this is one, it gets one stone... this is two, it gets two stones. This is three, how many stones should it gets?"

2. Encourage your child to try to do the same for the remaining labels "Three" to "Five".

Additional Information:
Joshua (2Y7M10D) tried it today. He could do it, but he didn't do it in order. He preferred to stick stickers on it than putting the glasss stones.
