Play connect the dots with your child.
What You Need:
• A jumbo pencil, jumbo crayons, or washable markers
What To Do:
1. Ask your child to make dots in any color all over a sheet of paper.
2. Show him how to draw a line from one dot to another.
3. Ask him to start with one dot and draw a line to another one; keep doing this until all the dots are connected. Don’t be concerned if the lines between the dots are not straight.
Draw several dots that will make a shape like a square when connected. Ask him to connect the dots and then describe the shape that results. Don’t be surprised if he connects the dots in a different way than you expect. Praise him. Then show him how to connect the dots to make a shape. Count the number of dots or the number of lines that are on the paper. If you speak more than one language, count in a different language.
