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!
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.
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 a auditory manner, and with an activity like this, you involve other senses too, making learning multisensory. And children learn best when all senses are involve in the learning process.
