First fill up some water balloons. Then write numbers on the balloons. We worked on 1-10. I always fill up extra in case some water balloons pop along the way.

Kysen started with one and then lined the balloons up 1-10.

After Kysen lined them all up he counted them to make sure he got all ten!

When we were all done practicing with numbers, he got to pop all the water balloons. First he was throwing them and then he decided to stomp on them!

Make sure you don’t forget to pick up the balloon pieces! It’s a great fine motor activity!

Phonological Awareness

Playing with Sounds in Language

We like to think of phonological awareness in preschool as playing with, recognizing and working with the sounds of language – or the sound system of language. Pre-Reading skills have a significant impact on a child’s ability to read and understand.
