A few weeks ago we got the cutest book from the library, The Sheep Fairy. It's a bit silly, perhaps not quality literature, but cute nonetheless :)
After reading it since we were also working on number sense and counting we decided to make some sheep to count.
- cotton balls
- construction paper
- Draw small circles on the paper and have your child put a dot of glue in each circle.
- Have your child place a cotton ball on each dot of glue.
- Draw an oval for a head on one side of each cotton ball and 4 sticks for legs. If your child can scribble feel free to guide him/her in drawing their own sticks for legs on the bottom of the cotton balls.
- Have fun counting sheep. Feel free to include as many or as few as you and your child want!
