Counting and 1:1 correspondence

Starboy has been working on counting this week, and on his 1:1 correspondence, another important math skill. He asked me to count the water bottles with him in a Tessy & Tab magazine. I brought out some glass beads so he could practice his 1:1 correspondence, and he quickly figured out he could color-match as well. (I made sure the beads were available in the same pattern as the picture. It looks like the pink bottles gave him something to think about, as he matched the clear beads to them last.)

He played with the setup for at least 15 minutes. And in case you were wondering, the total number of water bottles is "eleventeen."
