Count and Sing

Counting fingers and toes from one to ten is particularly fun when accompanied by rhymes such as "one, two, buckle my shoe." Or you could make up your own songs; the idea is to practice and make counting fun. Once you have a ditty you use, your child can go ahead and count everything she sees, from the cars parked on your street to the trees in your yard.
