This activity is one of many components necessary for a quality early literacy and math curriculum.
Encourage your child to count the objects and graph them in the appropriate space. Talk about concepts such as less than, greater than, etc.
The Book Chart included is a great motivational tool for your child. Start each week by putting a circle on the chart to give them a goal to reach that week. Every time your child reads a literacy story, plays a game or completes an activity sheet they can put a sticker on the chart. You can give your child incentives if they meet their weekly goal.
