Today is your turn to make up a story like the one I read yesterday. Use ten small objects like buttons, pasta shapes or Lego pieces and take one away at a time just like in the story to count all the way down from 10 to 1. Encourage your child to use their imagination and to think of different animals taking away every time.
Print the cards below to support your child counting and writing numbers up to 10. Encourage them to use their fingers to touch each picture as they count.
