With this little video, I tried to combine multiple elements in learning. This is very much inspired by the shorts I would watch on Sesame Street as a kid. Not only do you hear me say the number, you see the word on the screen, we count the balls as they come in, and you see the clay form the number. (Color is also an added element - but not as important) If you have play dough at home, feel free to do something simliar. When you form the number out of clay, help your child trace the number with their finger. Below you'll find a couple of board books that have numbers you can trace to help reinforce this idea, as well as some DVDs and stories that incorporate numbers and counting - and remember, that OverDrive has some great counting books too.
