Learn number 3 with preschool number games, songs, videos, and printable worksheets
Preschool number activities should be a fun and enjoyable experience for you and your child, a shared time together. So make sure that your child is switched on and not tired before you start the activities on this page. Keep the time spent appropriate to the child's age and their level of concentration. Increase your child's confidence using praise and encouragement. Compliment their success.
How to help your child with the game:
The game consists of 8 pages in an African animals theme. Talk about the activities on each page and make sure your child understands what they are to do. Let them talk about the pictures and name the animals in the picture. Talk to your child about the shape of the number and about seeing the number in other contexts. This will give your child an added interest in these activities. Remember this is for fun as well as being educational, so stop before your child loses concentration or becomes restless. This will ensure that they want to come back for more!
Encourage your child to color in the illustrations. This develops pencil control, improves eye and hand coordination, and builds up concentration. Make sure there is a range of colored pencils or felt-tip pens available. Crayons are usually too thick for such activities. For writing and drawing, your child needs a sharp and soft pencil. If it is too hard they will have difficulty seeing their work, which will lead to frustration.
When writing the number 3, describe the movement of the pencil - up, over, half round and half round again. Encourage your child to point at each object as it is counted.
When writing the number to words, point out that "h" is a tall letter.
