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!
