Counting Spanish numbers as a learning activity

Counting Spanish numbers can be easy when a fun game of collecting counting coins can be used. Children love to play games.

In this fun game of counting, children will collect different sets of coins to help the leprechaun fill his pot of gold. Once the leprechaun has all the four sets of coins, children can earn rewards or stickers.

The best part of the counting Spanish numbers game is children play while learning counting, Spanish terms, and sets of multiples. Why is this important?

As children become familiar with counting in multiples, they can easily grasp the concept of multiplication, organization, sequence, and logic. Sequential order is an important learning skill. Children can understand sequential order when simply repetitive rhymes are learned.

They can also learn logic when logical thinking is applied. Logical understanding of pattern order, sequential organization, and counting are all part of logic learning.

But counting doesn’t have to be boring task. Fun games like the counting Spanish numbers can increase children’s aptitude to recognize numbers and bilingual terms.
