Practice Number Sense with Summer Theme

Aside from using popsicles and ice creams for a summer learning theme, you can also use other themes. For example, you can use a beach or camping setting as a summer theme.

In this way, you can add other learning elements like beach objects. Some objects familiar are beach balls, seashells, sand castles, surfing boards, and beach umbrellas.

Everyday objects like these encourage children to activate prior knowledge. Counting the number of popsicles in summer may allow children to remember those numbers.

For instance, counting five popsicles can help your children the number five, write the number five, and understand that there are five popsicles. While this approach to counting is one of many ways, you can add other activities.

Use manipulatives, counters, or finger-painting to develop number sense and practice counting.

The popsicle summer number sense bilingual activities are quick and fun ways to count. When you use various methods to refresh counting, you motivate children to remember number identification, sequence, and operations.
