This was a simple but effective activity for J when we were focusing on numbers and counting. I just drew out the blank rectangles and titled the page in a matter of seconds, took out some stickers and had J place two stickers in each rectangle. He had no trouble to with this, though I do think doing the number three instead would have been quite difficult for him. We counted each sticker as he placed them in the rectangles.
A side benefit to this activity was it gave him a review of a rectangle (often confused with a square for J) and it ended up being a good fine motor activity since he had to place the sticker inside the rectangles. When all the rectangles were filled with two stickers, he asked me to draw more rectangles to fill. I think he liked it! As you can see in the picture, he helped me draw the last few rectangles. 🙂

**This would be a good plane activity similar to the color matching post.
