Today you are going to get better at estimating. Create a pile of objects. This could be anything that you have available such as toys, fruit, pasta, spoons etc. Hide them under a piece of material such as a tea towel. Briefly lift the cloth to reveal the pile to your child.
Can they guess how many there are?
How do they know?
Why do they think that?
How can they check?
Then check by counting encouraging your child to take one object each time to count carefully.
Were they right? How do they know? Give them the opportunity to explain their findings.
Share your learning with Miss Austin on Tapestry if you would like to, send her a picture or a message of something fun that you have been doing or just to say hello!
