➡ Matching involves one-to-one correspondence and is a great way to build some early math skills. Navish and I started out slowly, I showed him three flashcards, grabbed an animal magnet that matched one of the cards and asked, "Where's the____?" At first,Navish just stuck to pointing to its match while I placed it on the card. I then began handing the magnet to navish for him to match himself and asked him the same question. This id called scaffolding your child's learning-think like a ladder. Of course, we practiced saying the animal names, sounds and did some role playing. Have you ever seen a toddler pretend to be a gorilla? That's prime entertainment😅!
P.S. Don't forget to supervise and guide your child while they explore!
