My little guy loved matching the colored bear to the dot, and I counted along with him as he worked. Our little learning session was under five minutes, which is quite typical for this age. I printed these frames for free and used them in a game with my Five and Seven. They each rolled a die, put that number of bears on the frame, and then chose a different color of bears to fill in the rest of the frame. Finally, they wrote an addition problem to show an answer up to ten.

Should I keep pushing to see if he will get used to it or do home school? I have home schooled three of my six in the past so it is an option for me. I worry that he would not be getting enough social experience but I also wonder if that is just a myth? He plays with friends and we go to church every week.
Thanks so much!!!!!!!!!!!! Hi Gretchen! Some kids need that period of adjustment to start enjoying school. I think that the benefits of a positive homeschooling experience would outweigh that. Even with a wonderful parochial school, I still dream about it! Wow, these are wonderful activities! Thanks so much! These look great! I was just thinking about ordering some counting bears for Pooky. Found this by Tuesday Tots. This is a great idea. Especially the patterns on step 5. Taking a print out of those. But my daughter who has just turned 3 does not get patterns as yet.
Wonder when she will be ready for this? So it could be a while for her too!
