Let's Count

Use old used tins, washed, clean, and dried with no sharp edges on and create an animal head. Attach to the top with whatever glue or tape you have available. I recommend using larger pasta, either twists or shells to feed the animals, as they will be easier for your child to hold, with help.


Intentional exploration 

During the story 'Dear Zoo,' there are opportunities for the children, to 'intentionally, explore' the animals. Support and encourage them, giving them time, and helping them, to touch and feel. Describe the animal also, using simple language.

 Let's Count!! 

Children need lots of opportunities in, everyday activities, to develop 1:1 correspondence, and, with support, to practice counting. At school, we overemphasize the 1:1 correspondence and when counting, touch the children on the heads, with big movements. This allows and helps them to anticipate the touch on the head, and also the 1:1 correspondence.


The children are familiar with these number songs, and with support can practice 1:1 correspondence, while having fun listening and participating with a song.Here are some of their favourites.
