Now that Bo is starting preschool this year, we’re all about numbers and letters and thematic units. Even though we don’t really believe in “formal” schooling until kindergarten, Bo is definitely interested in learning her numbers! She loves counting and puzzles are one of her favorite things. I combined those two loves of hers with the lighthouse Number Sequencing Puzzle printable I made for her.
She had a blast putting together the puzzle and we had a lot of fun counting together.
Our preschool goal is to create a lot of hands-on activities that make learning fun so that when kindergarten does start, she will jump into reading and writing with joy.
Add these math challenges to your list of fun math activities for kids!
