Preschoolers and math

Preschoolers use math to help them solve problems and make sense of the world around them.  Children learn numbers by counting objects and talking about what they just counted. For example, if a child is playing a math game and his card has the number 5 on it, and he only counts out four blocks. Talk about the results with the child by saying "count your blocks, you have four blocks but your card says 5. How many more  blocks do you need?"
Not only is this child learning numbers and their amount but she is practicing her fine motor skills.

Preschooler also learn geomerty. They see shapes everywhere, they love to draw them and talk about them. Teachers use this as a learning opportunity and teachable moments as children explore their natural environment. These children were given a shape and were able to cut the shape and turn in into a picture of their choice. We will then make a classroom book so the children can enjoy thier artwork while learning geometry.
