With this cookie jar filled with cookies, children can develop their counting, subitizing (seeing how many are there without counting), and number recognition skills. Each cookie has raised chocolate chips so children can easily count the number of chocolate chips on the cookie. On the bottom side of each cookie is the matching number, so children can also practice recognizing the numbers and building their understanding that this number tells how many chocolate chips are in that group on that cookie. The jar includes 11 cookies with 0-10 chocolate chips on each cookie; including zero is important so that young children can get experience with it and understand it in context, in this case zero chocolate chips on the cookie.
