Counting Plates

Here is a simple way to get to know numbers, and counting. I just used 10 paper plates and wrote numbers 1-10 on each one. I found a packet of these paper rockets at the dollar store (pack of 25 in the school section). LM loves these rockets so this is all we've used so far, but you could use these plates to count just about anything!

We took one plate at a time and counted that number of rockets as we placed them on the plate.
We also laid out all the plates and would practice number recognition as I said a number and he found that plate. (We also used the beanbags to place on the number I would say to him.)
