Count With Dot Cards

Using circle stickers and index cards create dot cards with your youngsters. You can make a set of dot cards from 1-10 or however high you want to go. Arrange the dots so that it's easy for your child to “see” the number clearly. For example: The dot card for the number four can have the dots in 2 sets of two. Using the dot cards, flash the cards quickly (for just a few seconds) and see if your child can figure out the number. The more kids play, the better they will become.
