Milestones

Numbers and shapes

You might notice that:

  • I know that when you hide a toy under a blanket I will find it under the blanket.
  • I can sort out my toys and things so that the same ones are all together.
  • When I am playing with my toys or singing songs I will say number names in a mixed up order.
  • I try to put the shape pieces into a jigsaw board and sometimes match the right piece with the right hole.
  • I can build towers and long lines across the floor with bricks.
  • I know the order I need to use things to get dressed or to get ready for bed.
  • I know that when I see you with your coat we are going outside, or when I see my cup and bowl on the table it is time to have a drink and something to eat.

How you can help me learn:

  • Count with me as you put my clothes on, like “one sock, two socks” or “one button, two buttons, three buttons, four buttons”.
  • Let me explore what “full” and “empty” looks like when I’m playing in the bath with plastic bottles.
  • Let me play with puzzles where I have to try and put the piece into the matching space.
