Hands on Counting

I thought I’d share something my husband did while practicing counting with J on the fly after dinner.   He would hold an orange and say “How many oranges is Daddy holding?”  J would answer, they would count them out together and then he would ask if J wanted to hold the same number of oranges.  They started at one and worked their way up until there were no more oranges 🙂 They counted out the number of oranges in their hands each time.  J had fun trying to hold all those oranges like Daddy could.  It made it a game for him. 

 It was simple but effective.  Gotta love a dad that sees the opportunities to teach during an after-dinner snack!
