Match Up Pumpkins to Practice Counting

Use this fun, seasonal printable to help your early learner identify different ways to represent numbers.
on October 27, 2017

Counting with your child is an easy and fun way to help him learn his numbers. But counting isn’t the only way for him to know numbers! Another important concept for your child's learning is to identify and recognize numbers in different ways.

There are many forms of numbers, and building number understanding is a very important skill for your child. Exposing him to unique kinds of number representation will help him become more flexible with his math thinking and willing to take risks as numbers get larger. 

This matching pumpkin printable is a great way for your child to begin this kind of practice.
