Ask your child to place pom pom or stickers or playdough balls or any other item you have on the columns on the left. bottom. We used round stickers when doing this activity.
Then explain them that a group of ten stickers makes 1 ten.
And then ask your child – How many tens (group of ten stickers) can he see in individual number let us say 12. The answer is 1 and he will need to write 1 in ‘T’ part of rainbow.
You can then net ask them how many one’s in number 12. The answer is 2 and he will need to write 2 in ‘0’ part of rainbow.
