Another child takes a turn. 38 Early Numeracy DICE Extension • Use a set of cards with dots up to 10 (for example, playing cards). Early Numeracy Mathematical development One-to-one matching is sometimes referred to as oneto-one correspondence. The children need to match the counting rhyme with the same number of objects.
