Hi! My name is Ann and I am here to talk about numbers in kindergarten. It is important at home so that your student, your child be a successful learner is to go over the concept of numbers and what we call concrete operations. What that means is for example when you are counting, I do not know, a group of pens or some pinto beans or blocks anything. What you are doing is you are learning to count one number, one object. That is what we call one-to-one correspondence. So for example you are going to go one, two. You are going to make sure that your child is doing it this way. One, two. Sometimes students will go one, two or they will one. They are not going one-to-one with the number. This is again an important concept and something that you can certainly help at home and jump-start and have your child ready for kindergarten. You can also do nursery rhymes in regards to numbers like one, two, buckle my shoe that kind of thing. It again helps you with concrete operations with numbers and also that they know numbers 1 to 10. This is again another concept that they test for in kindergarten. Can a student count, lot of test questions are 1 to 20, but if you could certainly get 1-10 that would be great. So again just naming off the numbers in order 1-10. Thank you.
