Can you believe that it’s Christmas time in less than 2 months?  With this holiday season coming, I’d like to share this fun Christmas tree decorating and counting activity.  I made this last year but didn’t make it to the blog and shop.  The boys had so much fun putting “decors” into their tree with playdough.  You might want to check this out.

Are you getting into the Halloween spirit already?  I have some fun counting activities for your kids this Halloween season in case you are celebrating!

It is finally autumn and counting leaves has never been this fun!

The pumpkin season is here!  Take a look at our beautiful pumpkin cards which are perfect for the harvest season!

The Snake Game is one of the most popular math games in a Montessori classroom.  I introduced this to Mavi when he was 5 years ago, contrary to Vito who is just 46 months now.  Vito’s sensitive  years for counting arrived early while for Mavi it was alphabets and reading.  How fascinating, isn’t it?

Vito is 42 months old.
So we are seeing a lot of bugs lately.  Vito is enjoying it!  We do nature walks in the morning to see the honeybees, flies and unidentified flying objects in the field. And we even caught the wasp that went inside the house last week for exploration.  Lately, we would walk our way to Mavi’s school to pick him up.  During these walks, we would count the number of bugs we see in the bushes and trees.  Vito enjoyed it and I thought that we could also do it at home as an extension.  So I made this “garden” setup for him, wherein we will pretend to catch bugs with our tweezers and place the right number in our number cards.

Vito is 28 months old.

Odd as it may be, but Vito loves numbers and counting more than letters.  Yes, I find it odd because Mavi was into letters at his age and started to learn spelling by the time he’s 2.5 years old. It amazes me on how they can be different!

Anyway, I wanted to share with you this beautiful wooden number peg board I recently bought from a local store (materials are from Europe) and Vito loves this!  A precious piece of math material that teaches little children to count and practice hand-eye coordination at the same time!  I wanted to buy the Montessori Math Spindle, but when I saw this, I knew this is way more better (and a lot cheaper)!

Vito loves counting. He’s been counting since he’s 1.5 years old.  He recited and recognized the numbers from 1 to 10 first before the letters.  He is unlike Mavi who recognized and recited the alphabet first (1.5 years old) before he became interested with numbers (3 years old).

And because of Vito’s interest, I am always giving him different counting activities to feed this interest.  One of his favourite is using our counting cards for one to one correspondence.  These were Mavi’s and I barely used them with him.
