Children at age 2 to 3 start using early math skills throughout their daily routines and activities. Counting is the most basic math skill, that is, determining the number of elements in a collection of objects. Learning to count is an important educational/developmental milestone for a child. It is a child's very first step into mathematics and constitutes the most fundamental idea of that discipline. Many children at 2 to 3 years of age develop some skills in reciting the count list (i.e., saying "one, two, three, ..."). However, research suggests that it takes about a year for a child to understand what the numbers mean and why the counting procedures are performed. Practicing in daily activities helps children understanding and mastering counting skills. This worksheet presents the first nine numbers (1 to 9) together with pictures of collections of items (apples). It can be used together with real objects to aid comprehension.
