Do you know a child who struggles with learning numbers and counting? Well, here is a simple and creative way to teach counting! You will need four or five different colored cups and pom poms with corresponding colors. Glue or tape each number and it's appropriate number of "dots" on the cup.
Begin the activity with the pom poms mixed together on a surface in front of the cups. Having the child place the correct number of pom poms in front of each cup pointing and using one-to-one correspondence and the dots as a guide. Once the child has placed the correct number of pom poms in front of each cup, he can place them inside the cup. Make this task more challenging and address fine motor skills by having the child use tongs to sort and place the pom poms.
