Concept of Number

Your pre-schooler will learn that the number "3" refers to three objects, such as his 3 fingers. The most important topic your child learns in Pre-K is developing the concept of number. You can help your child understand that number words refer to quantity. The number "1" refers to a single object - in this case, one balloon. The number "2" refers to two objects - two balloons.
