If there is one story that my kids love to return to over and over again it is Goldilocks and the Three Bears. I added these favorite Goldilocks characters to our recent kindergarten math activities, making hands-on learning fun and connecting our math lessons in with our story reading activities.
This week, we played with our frog and bear counters to practice color and size sorting! Sorting and separating rainbow counters or rainbow bear counters helps preschoolers with color and shape discrimination, and playing with physical counters or beads encourages fine motor skills development.
The ones I have are also beads, so my daughter loves stringing them into a necklace. This week, we took turns making a pond full of colorful lily pads that needed the right colored frogs on them.Strawberry asked to practice color and size sorting again and again!
