# Exercises for counting to three

Counting is the process of determining the number of elements in a collection of objects, and it is an important foundation for understanding basic mathematics. By the age of 2 to 3 years, children should be able to count to three. While counting involves more than learning numbers, it also involves understanding the meaning of numbers. When kids could match numbers with certain items, they are able to count with meanings.

This worksheet provides exercises for counting objects in different groups, each containing a maximum of 3 objects. You may ask your kids to count the number of objects in each group, and write down the missing counts, or if they are not able to write yet, speak out the counts. When your kids have more experience with counting, they will gradually learn the meaning of numbers and counts.

The exercises also contain a variety of different objects in cartoon pictures, such as apple, orange, lemon, banana, strawberry, basketball, balloon, star, piggy bank and duck. This is a good way of introducing colors and shapes to kids.
