5. Count your surroundings!

Make this part of your every day adventures with your child. 

Make it a game, if you are enthusiastic about it your kids will be too!

How many Tahdígs on your plate?

How many strawberries in your bowl?

How many cars on the road ..

How many dogs in the park ...

Count the stairs as you go up or down them

 Or make this cardboard Cookie Monster with numbered pompom "choc chips"

6. Play Monopoly 

Rolling the dice and learning to count in Persian by moving each figure and counting out loud in Persian the number of "moves" you have to go forwards. I used this to switch my sons counting back to Persian after he started kindy and wanted to speak English. 


7. Game: What's the Time Mr. Wolf? Sáat chande Áqáye gorg? 

Play the age old game of whats the time Mr. Wolf but in Persian!

Line up the kids on a marker and pick one "wolf" "gorg" to be 50meters infront facing away from the children.

The children on one side will call out to the "gorg", "Sáat chande Aqáye gorg?"

and he will respond

"sáat panje" and the children will have to take 5 steps closer to the wolf, they will continue to do this with varying number of steps depening on the "time"

when the wolf is ready he will turn around and try to tag as many of the kids as he can before they reach the marker on the other side of the room.

Great way to make learning numbers fun and interactive.

Best played with at least 4 children


7. Make a Persian Number Clock

Purchase an inexpensive play clock with no numbering on the face

Number from ۱ - ۱۲

Using the big and little hand to help show the time
