Draw and Estimate: For this activity you will need a white board, markers, an eraser, and number flashcards. On the white board draw a picture of an object, such as a jar with candy inside, a bag with food inside, or a box with dog bones inside. Next, pull out three number cards. One of the number cards will represent a number that is close to the number of items pictured in the drawing. The other two cards should be numbers that are not close to the number of items in the drawing. After you have drawn the picture and pulled out the number cards, ask your child to look at the picture, estimate the number of items shown, and then locate the number card that shows the best estimate for the picture. You can take turns with this activity and have them draw a picture and pull the cards for you to estimate as well.
