Method: Interview
Skill: The child will be able to count the number of items and then choose the symbol that represents that amount
Materials: Objects the child enjoys and cards or paper with numerals on them (1-10)
Procedure: Place a certain amount of items on a table and ask the child to count them. Ask the child to choose the card that has the same number as the amount of items they have.
Evaluation:Notice which numbers the child can identify and which numbers the child needs help with.

• Numbers
Title: Finding numbers in our world
Method: Observation
Skill: Recognizing symbols as numbers instead of letters
Materials: Child and the world around them
Procedure: Observe the child as they walk around their world looking for numbers.
