How many eggs are in a jar?
Look at the picture with your child and ask them to guess how many eggs are in the jar. Remind them to look carefully before making a guess. When we make a guess based on information—estimating—we are practicing an important early math skill. It helps young children to learn concepts like smaller and bigger or less and more—this is something we call number sense. Ask others in your home to make a guess, too! Remember, when we estimate, it is ok to have different answers from one another.
