It’s rhymetime! This week we are learning the rhyme ‘1,2,3,4,5, once I caught a fish alive…’! We played with a magnetic fishing game I whipped up in less than 10 minutes!
The cute fishies were made from, guess it…paper clips! This is how:
I added some numbered stickers to the fish, and also to the paper. The idea is to find (“fish”)for the fish and place it in the right numerical order.
Adding a sensory element to learning makes the learning fun and your child might be more engaged in learning too.
Being able to order numbers is an important skill for a child to develop. With rhymes and songs like ‘1,2,3,4,5, once I caught a fish alive, 6,7,8,9,10, then I let it go again..’, help kids to learn ordering in an auditory manner, and with an activity like this, you involve other senses too, making learning multisensory. And children learn best when all senses are involved in the learning process.
A fun way to learn to count and order numbers in the right way. 1, 2, 3 4, 5 once I caught a fish alive…
