The best way to learn is to not even know it is learning but to think it is play! We have been working on the theme Under the Sea, and the letter F. We have also been working on understanding counting up to 4 (he can count higher but he loses the meaning of the quantity).
I made this cute two sided card to use with goldfish (or goldfish pretzels) to make snack time a fun learning time. I printed it with the letter on one side and the counting on the other side. Then I laminated it so we could use it over and over. If you don’t have a laminator, just print it out- it will last long enough for you to use it a few times.
The first time I introduced the card, we did the numbers and then the next time we did the letter. I put the goldfish in the bowl to start with- I added extra because they seem to get eaten in the process. In the above picture he did that by himself.
Here is what both sides of the printout look like:
